Plain English Summary

Background and study aims
Current as of 29/06/2017: This is cohort multiple embedded randomised controlled trial study. The study aims to capture data from the cohort of patients who present with a hip fracture at 21 NHS Trusts within the United Kingdom. We will record patient-reported outcomes and provide a baseline cohort within which to test the clinical effectiveness of experimental interventions through embedded randomised controlled trials.

Previous: The aim of this study is to evaluate the use of PROMs in the context of the National Hip Fracture Audit. It will record how well patients recover from their broken hip. The patients will be asked about their health using questionnaires in the post or over the telephone at 1 month, 4 months and 1 year.

Who can participate?
Current as of 29/06/2017: Patients presenting to one of the NHS Trusts with a fracture of the proximal femur.
Previous: Patients presenting with a fracture of the proximal femur to University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Trust.

What does the study involve?
Current as of 29/06/2017: The study involves using patient reported questionnaires to monitor activity level, general health and how well they are able to perform certain day-to-day tasks at 4 months following a hip fracture.

Previous: The study involves using patient reported questionnaires to monitor activity level, general health and how well they are able to perform certain day-to-day tasks at 1 month, 4 months and 1 year following a hip fracture.

What are the possible benefits and risks of participating?
There are no specific benefits. There are no specific risks either. We will ask you to fill in some questionnaires. The information we get from this study may help us to treat future patients with hip fracture.

Where is the study run from?
Current as of 29/06/2017: The study is sponsored by the University of Oxford and is run from Oxford Trauma, a part of the Nuffield Department of Othopaedics Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences.
Previous: The study is run from University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Trust & University
of Warwick.

When is the study starting and how long is it expected to run for?
Current as of 29/06/2017: December 2011 to August 2018
Previous: Dec 2011 until Dec 2016

Who is funding the study?

Study information

Scientific title

World Hip Trauma Evaluation: a comprehensive cohort study of patients with fracture of the
proximal femur

Acronym

WHiTE

Study hypothesis

NHS Trusts are required to follow-up and record data about all patients admitted with a fracture of the proximal femur as part of the National Hip Fracture Audit. This Audit records data relevant to service evaluation but does not contain patient-centred outcomes (PROMs). Therefore, it cannot provide meaningful data regarding the clinical effectiveness of treatments.

The aim of this study is to evaluate the use of PROMs in the context of the National Hip Fracture Audit.
