Project Description

Many patients after hip fracture have markedly reduced levels of walking and find it difficult to return home. A big problem for people recovering from a hip fracture is that despite physical rehabilitation they lack confidence in their walking. We will find out if a program of motivational interviewing will increase walking and help people return to living in the community after hip fracture.
