Significant reductions in mortality occurred with improved care after hip fractures, shows a new study in China by The George Institute for Global Health and Beijing Jishuitan Hospital, published in the Lancet Regional Health – Western Pacific. By adding geriatric care to the traditional orthopaedic care within a broader co-management care model, doctors were able to slash mortality by 41% while also reducing other complications such as delirium, pneumonia, and deep venous thrombosis.

One in five people around the world are likely to develop cancer during their lifetime, and a third of cancer deaths are linked to common modifiable behavioural risk factors. It is of great importance to implement effective health strategies to prevent cancer and help people live a longer and healthier life. A new study aiming to reduce cancer risks by promoting health programs in workplaces will commence in early 2022.
