Pain Management Interventions for Hip Fracture

Slide: 43 of 46

Knowledge Gaps and Future Research Needs (1)

Few studies of pain management interventions have been performed that specifically address effectiveness, benefits, and harms in elderly patients with hip fracture.

There are no studies that compare the effectiveness and safety of the systemic opioid and NSAID analgesics that are currently used for elderly patients with hip fracture.

There is no evidence about the effectiveness of multimodal approaches for acute pain relief, and the evidence is insufficient to understand the influence on adverse events.
