Educational tools for the care of older adults with fractures.
AOTrauma releases another high-quality app to assist in the management of fracture patients, this time with a focus on geriatric patients. Not surprisingly, the app’s interface is smooth and intuitive, separated into 4 categories: osteoporosis, delirium, anticoagulation, and pain management. Each section is organized as a drill-down series of questions to help guide the treatment for these patients based on current literature. At every step, “background information” can be selected to see the evidence guiding each decision. The app is simple, useful, and achieves the stated goals of helping surgeons manage common co-morbidities in elderly fracture patients.
