Infographic for systematic review found mobility strategies led to an increase in mobility in adults after surgery for hip fracture compared to usual care

Last month we summarised the systematic review by Fairhall et al 2022. The review concluded that interventions targeting mobility after hip fracture may cause clinically meaningful improvements in mobility in hospital and post-hospital settings, compared with conventional care. The certainty of evidence was rated as low for hospital settings and high for post-hospital settings.

Some findings are included in this infographic.
