BACKGROUND: Effects following a hip fracture often lead to functional disabilities and increased dependence on others. Although persons sustaining a hip fracture constitute a heterogeneous group in Swedish health care, they tend to be treated as a homogenous one. AIM: The aim of this study was to reveal how previously healthy people, aged 65 years and older, described how they had adapted to daily life four months after a hip fracture. METHOD: The follow-up interviews were performed by the first author four months after the hip fracture...

Patients with a hip fracture may be appropriately delayed for surgery as they require optimisation or clinical interventions to treat acute medical illnesses (Moja et al., 2012). Other patients are inappropriately delayed due to hospital factors (Brener, 2013; Lee & Elfar, 2014). Timely efficient admission and surgery is well documented as the best course of management for these patients. The aim of this prospective cohort longitudinal follow-up study was to establish if a relationship existed between duration of time spent in the Emergency Department (ED), time to surgery and functional ability in patients with hip fractures and to examine the effect prolonged waits may have on ability to return home...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To generate a substantive theory that explained recovery from hip fracture from the perspective of older adults and find out how they managed it. BACKGROUND: Hip fracture is a well-researched phenomenon. The perspective of how older adults recover from hip fracture has been examined least of all. Patients spend less time in hospital following injury and generally recover in their home setting. DESIGN: A Glaserian grounded theory approach was used for this study...

STUDY DESIGN: A literature review. OBJECTIVES: To identify the factors and concerns that influence the decision of patients to undergo spinal surgery. METHODS: Electronic databases MEDLINE, PsycINFO, CINAHL plus, and Embase were searched for relevant studies published from 2000 to 2015. The keywords for the search included: spine surgery OR spinal stenosis AND decision making OR consideration OR preference OR willingness OR concern. Seven quantitative studies met the criteria for inclusion and were included in this review...

REVIEW
James P Gavin, Tikki Immins, Thomas Wainwright
BACKGROUND: Total hip replacement (THR) and total knee replacement (TKR) are common orthopaedic procedures. However, an optimal programme for post-operative rehabilitation has yet to be established. Stair negotiation is a challenging, habitual task, regularly used as a post-operative functional outcome measure; yet as a physical rehabilitation intervention it appears to be rarely used. AIM: The review purpose was to investigate the effectiveness of stair climbing as a rehabilitation intervention for THR and TKR patients...

BACKGROUND: This paper presents a qualitative study protocol focusing on older peoples' experience of recovery in acute care following hip fracture and also the experiences of their family or informal carers. There is limited evidence regarding older people and their relatives'/carers' experiences of recovery in acute care. AIM: The study had two research questions. First what is the experience of older people who have suffered a fractured hip and secondly what is the relatives'/carers' experience of being alongside a person who has suffered a fractured hip? METHODS: The methodology chosen is phenomenology using the methods of interviewing and participant observation...

BACKGROUND: The postoperative treatment after a standard surgical intervention such as knee arthroplasty, proximal tibial osteotomy or supracondylar osteotomy, can have an important impact on the overall treatment outcome. In most cases, outcomes are positively effected by patients receiving physiotherapy and occupational therapy. Basic movements and range of motion need to be learnt. Self-responsible behaviour, which is similar to exercise programs in sports, needs to be supported. However, in most cases the transfer of training techniques into successful and desired postoperative care is not simple...

Specialised DDH (developmental dysplasion of the hip) clinics are developing around Ireland but are, however, variable in how they are operated. A DDH clinic was set up in the South-east of Ireland in 2002 with the goal of achieving an integrated care pathway between the orthopaedic surgical team and nursing team, working to an explicit protocol while also fostering a strong collaboration with the ultrasound department. This paper aims to explore the effectiveness of this dedicated clinic in the Southeast of Ireland...

The aim of the study was to explore and describe spouses' experiences of participating in a case management intervention during older patients' fast-track programme having total hip replacement as well as which intervention elements they found useful. Data were collected through qualitative interviews with 10 spouses from the intervention group of the SICAM-trial, directed by predetermined codes based on elements of the intervention. Data were analysed by both authors using directed content analysis. The results showed that the spouses were very pleased about being a part of the case management intervention...

BACKGROUND: Counselling for day surgery patients is one of the core components for a knee or shoulder arthroscopy patient to succeed in self-care. AIM: This cross-sectional study examined the quality of counselling given to patients (n = 86) during their day surgery, using the Counselling Quality Instrument (CQI). METHODS: The data were analysed using basic and multivariate statistical methods. RESULTS: Most respondents were male and aged over 50 years...

Pain is common in trauma patients who may be older and also may have cognitive impairment leading to reduced communication about their pain. A number of observational pain assessment tools are available and have been found to have limited clinical usefulness. The Bolton Pain Assessment Tool (BPAT) was developed following a trial of three established tools and includes a section to involve family and/or close carers in the pain assessment process. The aim of this paper is to present the findings of initial testing of BPAT...

Connie Bøttcher Berthelsen, Kirsten Frederiksen
The lack of individualised care in orthopaedic regimes is often explained by the extended use of patient pathways and clinical guidelines. The aim of this study was to illuminate orthopaedic nurses' perceptions and experiences of providing individual nursing care for older patients in standardised fast-track programmes after total hip or knee replacement. Ten semi-structured interviews were conducted with orthopaedic nurses in orthopaedic wards at three Danish hospitals between April and June of 2015. Data were analysed using manifest and latent content analysis according to Graneheim and Lundman...

BACKGROUND: During their decision-making process patients perceive surgery as a voluntary yet necessary choice. Surgery initiates hope for a life with less pain but also creates a feeling of existential insecurity in terms of fear, isolation and uncertainty. AIM: The aim of this study was to explore how patients experience their situation from the point of making the decision to undergo spinal fusion surgery to living their everyday life after surgery. METHOD: A phenomenological-hermeneutic study design was applied based on the French philosopher Paul Ricoeur's theory of interpretation...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To explore healthy older patients' perceptions of their own capacity to regain pre-fracture function in the acute phase following hip fracture surgery. BACKGROUND: The incidence of hip fractures is expected to increase. In Sweden, of the patients who sustain a hip fracture, 40 per cent are healthy and lived independently pre fracture. However, a hip fracture often results in declined functional outcomes for 40 per cent of these patients. DESIGN: The study had an explorative inductive qualitative design...

BACKGROUND: The first part of this series of 2 articles revealed that chronic pain is an important issue post extremity trauma (ET) involving permanent biological transformations. Interventions aimed at preventing chronic pain in ET patients are therefore required. OBJECTIVE: To conduct a comprehensive analysis of literature on risk and protective factors for chronic pain post-ET to guide the development of relevant preventive interventions. METHODS: A narrative review of the literature was undertaken...
