Abstract: Each year , more than 300 ,000 people fracture their hip . The number of hip fractures in the US is expected to increase with the aging of the population in the coming years ; by 2040 , 500 ,000 patients annually will sustain a hip fracture . Better understanding of factors impacting outcomes after hip fractures can inform the health care work force , facilitate future interventions to improve outcomes for patients with hip fractures and inform future health policy . This dissertation reviewed the impact of race /ethnicity and comorbidity on perioperative and subacute hip fracture management and discussed the implications for future medical management and health policy .
