Project

Hip fractures in Norway: Predictors, incidence and survival. Norwegian Epidemiologic Osteoporosis Studies (NOREPOS) - project description

Published Updated


The aim of the project is to explore the possible causes for the high incidence of hip fractures in Norway.


Summary

Norway has among the highest incidence of hip fractures in the world. Hip fractures entail pain, loss of function, reduced life expectancy and large healthcare costs to society. The aim of the project is to explore the possible causes for the high incidence of hip fractures in Norway. This includes describing incidence of hip fractures and excess mortality after hip fracture, and to study geographic and socio-demographic variations, individual risk factors, prescription drug use, seasonal variation and time trends in hip fracture incidence and survival. The research is conducted as part of the NOREPOS collaboration, an interdisciplinary research network including the four university medical faculties in the country, in addition to the Norwegian Institute of Public Health.
