  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To evaluate the short (four months or less) and longer term effects of interventions, including programmes, specifically aimed at improving and restoring physical and psychosocial functioning after a hip fracture in older people.

The primary comparison will be between any relevant intervention versus no or placebo (sham) intervention, or conventional or usual care.
