Variations in initial acceptance and continued adherence to wearing hip protectors: Are they explained by factors other than staff attitude?

By Colin Cryer

Abstract

Hip fractures are an important consequence of falling. Methods of preventing hip\ud fractures include:\ud 1. reducing the risk of falling ,\ud 2. strengthen ing (or maintaining the strength of bones) through osteoporosis\ud treatment and prevention , and\ud 3. through the use of hip protecto rs.\ud Cluster-randomised trials indicate that for those living in residential care and nursing\ud homes with a high risk of hip fracture. a programme of providing hip protectors appears\ud to reduce the incidence of hip fractures
