Pain Management Interventions for Hip Fracture
Knowledge Gaps and Future Research Needs (3)
To improve evidence quality and reduce bias, future research should use blinded outcome assessors, validated and standardized outcome-assessment tools, adequate concealment of allocation to an intervention (where applicable), and appropriate handling of missing data.
Multicenter research studies are needed that are large enough for statistical analysis of subgroups (by age, gender, comorbidities, or prefracture functional status) and for detection of adverse effects.
