Pain Management Interventions for Hip Fracture
Clinically Significant Outcomes of Interest
The clinical outcomes of interest examined in the CER are outlined here. They were determined a priori in the preparation of the CER.
The available evidence addressing acute and chronic pain intensity overall, on movement, or at rest were assessed for each intervention. Most studies examined acute pain, which is defined as the emotional and sensory response to injury, which lasts for the duration of injury and healing.
For hip fracture studies, the duration for acute pain is defined as that occurring up to 30 days postfracture.
