This report is testament to the commitment of all the participating hospitals to the Irish Hip Fracture Database (IHFD) and the focus on providing hip fracture patients with care that is aligned to international best practice standards. The report also highlights the continuing variability in all standards at hospital level. The IHFD allows hospitals and hospital groups to measure their care at hospital, inter-hospital and national levels. This year, the 2017 IHFD report marks a departure from the Blue Book Standards (British Orthopaedic Association, 2007). As the IHFD has evolved, so too has the way we measure our hip fracture care in Ireland. From now on, the standards of care will be known as the Irish Hip Fracture Standards (IHFS) as determined by the Irish Hip Fracture Database Governance Committee.
