The Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation Program at Toronto Rehab developed a successful and cost-effective model of care for hip fracture patients who have cognitive impairments, called Fractured Hip Rapid Assessment and Treatment (FHRAT). This inter-professional service specializes in meeting the needs of individuals who have recently undergone surgery to repair a fractured hip and who may have other impairments such as dementia, delirium, and depression which can impact a patient’s cognition and overall functional abilities. Toronto Rehab is working collaboratively with the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network and the Greater Toronto Area Rehab Network on expansion and evaluation of this initiative across the GTA.
