Event description

Description

Overview

The Australian & New Zealand Hip Fracture Registry (ANZHFR) is a bi-national audit of hip fracture care and secondary fracture prevention in Australia and New Zealand.

Its objective is to use data to improve hip fracture care across both countries.

The Festival will offer a forum to learn from each other and highlight examples of best practice. This will be a forum to identify issues and find solutions that are common across hospitals to help drive improvement in hip fracture care.


Aims

  • Learn from existing practice to improve care for your hip fracture patients

  • Provide an opportunity to network with others to share ideas on improving hip fracture care

  • Reflect on your current practice and identify ways to improve the care provided

  • Update you on developments in hip fracture care

  • Generate strategies for improving care at your hospital


Registration
