Quality-Based Procedures (QBP) - Hip Fracture and Total Joint Replacement

Supporting standardized rehabilitative care best practices

The RCA has created best practices frameworks for rehabilitative care for patients following hip fracture and primary hip and knee replacement. The frameworks establish standards for care and support implementation of quality-based procedures. 

The RCA is currently developing tools and resources to support implementation of the best practices at the system and organization level. A more detailed list of all activities for all RCA initiatives is found here
