Award title:  SPCR Post-doctoral fellowship 

Project Title:  Physiotherapy for people with advanced dementia following hip fracture 

Brief Summary: Outcomes for people with hip fracture are poor with approximately only 33% of people returning to their prior level of function and only 24% of people independently mobile by six months after hip fracture. The presence of dementia further worsens outcomes with a significantly increased risk of nursing home admission or death. Physiotherapy is core to the management of people following surgery for hip fracture, yet there is little evidence to guide physiotherapists how to treat this population, especially when the dementia is advanced. The aim of this fellowship is to develop an intervention designed to support people with advanced dementia following hip fracture and then explore the feasibility of delivering this intervention.
