The fourth session in the 'Injury Prevention Sessions', co-hosted by UNSW School of Population Health, Sydney and the WHO Collaborating Centre on Injury Prevention and Trauma Care at The George Institute for Global Health focused on developing better care for older hip fracture patients in China. 

The recording is available here: 


Hip fracture is a major emerging public health issue in China due to changing demographics and an ageing population. There are well-established clinical guidelines and pathways used effectively in high-income settings but uptake of these is low in China. Over the past decade, we have conducted a series of research studies on hip fracture in China, aiming to identify the evidence and practice gap, implement and evaluate guideline-based interventions, understand the factors associated with the uptake of the best practice, and further to establish the national hip fracture registry and develop Chinese hip fracture guidelines. In this seminar, Maoyi Tian presents all prior and current work in hip fracture in China, as a joint collaboration between Beijing Jishuitan Hospital, The George Institute for Global Health, and the UNSW School of Population Health.

The 'Injury Prevention Sessions' are action-focused conversations about how we learn from local solutions to address the global problem of injury. From practitioners to researchers to students, this informal forum brings together like-minded individuals to explore innovative injury prevention research methodologies and opportunities to work together to save lives globally. This webinar series is co-hosted by UNSW School of Population Health and the WHO Collaborating Centre on Injury Prevention and Trauma Care at The George Institute for Global Health.
