Session Type: Educational Sessions
Session Level: Intermediate

The Orthopaedics Section and Academy of Geriatric Physical Therapy (AGPT) collaborated on the development of a clinical practice guideline (CPG) for management of older adults with hip fracture. The methods for development were consistent with national, international, Orthopaedics Section and AGPT standards. The structure and content of the CPG follows Orthopaedics Section format using the WHO International Classification of Functioning Health and Disability, providing background on the condition and specific recommendations for examination, including clinical measures of impairment of body function and structures, and self-report and performance measures of activity limitation and participation restriction; and for physical therapy intervention. This session will present the process, findings, and recommendations of the CPG for management of older adults with hip fracture and its relationship to other relevant CPGs. Case studies will be used to discuss implementation.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

1. Describe components of examination based on physical therapist practice standards.

2. Identify the recommendations for measures of impairment, activity limitations, and participation restrictions for older adults recovering from hip fracture.

3. Identify the recommendations for intervention in this clinical population.

4. Implement evidence-based management strategies based on the CPG.
