Abstract:
Session presented on Saturday, November 7, 2015 and Sunday, November 8, 2015: Geriatric hip fractures have become nearly epidemic in the United States with over 2 million fractures each year, more than heart attacks, strokes, and breast cancer combined (American Orthopedic Association, 2015).  One-fourth of patients who suffer a fragility fracture will die within one year, and many others will not return to previous level of function (American Orthopedic Association, 2015).  This poster examines implementation of prevention strategies from the evidence-based practice program of “Own the Bone” by the American Orthopedic Association in an 800 bed Community hospital.
