Abstract

Hip fractures are a source of major morbidity and mortality for those over 65 years old. After a hip fracture, half of people over this age are unable to live independently, and up to 37% will die within the first year.1 Primary care providers need to ensure that important screening and treatment options are used to reduce morbidity and mortality in this population. This article reviews protein supplementation, physical rehabilitation, and the treatment of osteoporosis, pain, and depression to significantly improve outcomes in individuals over 65 after hip fracture.
