About this publication
The Norwegian Knowledge Centre for the Health Services was commissioned to find relevant research about the effectiveness of rehabilitation for patients with hip fracture. In 2010 we published an overview of systematic reviews about the rehabilitation of patients with hip fracture. In this publication we concluded that:
“Although a substantial number of studies have been performed, we found no conclusive evidence regarding choice of intervention, combinations of interventions, organisation of rehabilitation or timing of rehabilitation. This is largely attributable to heterogeneity in interventions and measures. The conclusions were based on results in three Cochrane reports”.
This current publication is an update of the literature search performed to find more recently published systematic reviews.
We used a previously designed search strategy and searched for systematic reviews published after 2010. We performed the electronic search for reviews in May 2013. All the references from the search was evaluated and selected according to pre-defined inclusion criteria.
We identified a total of 28 references in the database search. Five were potentially relevant reviews.
