Clinical Care Guidelines (Hip Fracture)

The GTA Rehab Network has clinical care guidelines for hip fracture in acute care and rehab.

The guidelines are one component of the Network’s initiative to improve access to inpatient rehabilitation for patients with hip fractures.

The guidelines for acute and inpatient rehab build on the previous guidelines developed by the Bone and Joint Health Network. They incorporate the latest information from Osteoporosis Canada as well as screening tools, protocols and educational materials used by hospitals to support the smooth and early transition of patients to inpatient rehabilitation.
