Comprehensive care (CC) represents the basic approach of orthogeriatric comanaged care with the overall objectives of improving results regarding physical and psychological functions and reducing hospitalization, long-term care placement and mortality. It is a two-stage process that includes the Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) and the development and implementation of an interdisciplinary treatment plan based on priority interventions and unmet needs. In older hip fracture patients CC has to face crucial issues such as treatment choice and surgical options, clinical stabilization of patients before surgery and the prevention and treatment of complication in the postoperative phase. The main aim are to avoid inappropriate surgical delays and reduce the overall number of days of immobility endorsing an early ambulation with full weight bearing as tolerated. Multiprofessional CC must also ensure uninterrupted care for transition between the different care levels that patients need after fracture before returning home. Therefore another important issue is a structured discharge plan tailored to the individual patient identifying subjects that could benefit from a skilled or more intensive rehabilitation, identifying patients and family that will probably need a higher level of care even after rehabilitation, determining timing of discharge, defining the continuing care that needs to be provided and finally ensuring the patient has access to available services and resources. However, the implementation of a comprehensive and multidisciplinary co-care model in an orthopedic unit is a difficult task because it is necessary a great effort to change cultural attitudes related to traditional model of care.
