Exercise self-management to improve long-term functioning and prevent falls after hip fracture (RESTORE)
The project evaluates the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a group-based exercise self-management program for people who have had a hip or pelvic fracture.
The study is a randomised controlled trial comparing the exercise self-management program to a usual care control program for 300 older people who have suffered a hip fracture. The program involves home visits from a physiotherapist and possible attendance at a six week group discussion program.
Falls are measured for 12 months with monthly calendars and disability is measured with monthly questionnaires and a physical assessment at 12 months.
