Abstract

This article discusses the roles of various interdisciplinary team members, such as physicians, dietitians, physical therapists, social workers, activity therapists, and nursing staff, whose combined expertise is necessary to prevent hip fractures in nursing homes. To be successful, these professionals must be aware of and respect the roles of all team members, consistently identify the risk factors associated with hip fracture, and implement, evaluate, and modify interventions on an individual basis.
