Update information

May 2017: Recommendations have been updated on the surgical management of hip fracture. These are marked as [2017]. A footnote was added to recommendation 1.6.5 on cemented implants to highlight safety guidance.

Where recommendations end [2011] or [2011, amended 2014], the evidence has not been reviewed since the original guideline.

March 2014: The introduction to the full guideline and the wording of recommendation 1.1.1 have been amended to clarify how an occult fracture is identified and when an MRI scan should be done.

Minor updates since publication
