    Abstract

    In 2014, >24,000 people suffered a hip fracture in Australia. 1/3 of these people live in residential care. In other patient groups, multidisciplinary care improves processes of care, outcomes. Less clear whether CGA-based approaches work in this group on return from acute care. Can we improve mobility & QoLwhile decreasing mortality & falls?
