Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The purpose of this study was to investigate patients' experiences of care in connection with hip fracture. The care process was examined through non-participant observation, informal field interviews and healthcare records. The findings showed that many factors in the healthcare services directly or indirectly influence patients' perceptions of the quality of care. Some of these factors may depend upon a varying knowledge and empathy, while others are due to a lack of agreed protocols/procedures. Patients' needs with respect to pain relief and nutrition are discussed.
