Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to report the findings from a grounded theory study exploring people’s concerns after fall-induced hip fracture. Hip fracture remains one of the most significant causes of death and ill health amongst older people (SIGN, 2009). The concerns of those who experience this traumatic injury are not articulated in the literature (Olsson et al., 2007).
