About

Objectives: To evaluate the feasibility of a HIP fracture REhabilitation Programme (HIP-REP).This study will investigate adherence, satisfaction, technical and practical circumstances regarding implementation and taking this into account when evaluating the feasibility of the HIP-REP program. Hypothesis: By testing the feasibility of a HIP-REP for the participants and the usefulness of the selected measurement tools, the investigators will be able to evaluate and adjust the HIP-REP before evaluating this in a larger Randomized controlled trial (RCT).

Full description

Little is known about the feasibility and effect of an intersectoral rehabilitation intervention aiming at reducing the decrease in Activities of Daily Living (ADL) ability for elderly with hip fractures. Despite positive surgical outcomes, one-quarter dies within a year after surgery, around eight percent are readmitted to hospital, and just one-third regain their pre-fracture level of physical functioning and ADL ability. After hip fracture, the loss of independence, and further decrease in ADL ability often persists beyond three months after surgery. This increases the risk of social isolation, depression and thus a decrease in Quality of Life (QoL). Therefore, the investigators want to evaluate whether an activity-based rehabilitation intervention across sectors is feasible and influences this fragile group of patients. The investigators hope to increase the ability to safely and independently perform ADL in elderly with hip fractures, and thereby enhance their health-related QoL.
