A randomised controlled trial comparing an accelerated rehabilitation program after proximal femoral fracture with conventional care and rehabilitation was conducted with 252 elderly patients treated at an Australian general hospital in 1989/1990.
This paper presents a cost-effectiveness analysis of the accelerated rehabilitation program.
The measure of cost was all direct costs of treatment and subsequent care (medical and non-medical) incurred during the 4 months after fracture.
Effectiveness was defined as whether the patient returned to semi-independent living ; or if moderately or severely disabled prior to the fracture to the premorbid level of physical independence.
