To promote quality improvement in long bone fracture, organizations must develop protocols and procedures to ensure quality care when diagnosing and treating patients with fractures. One intervention could include training seminars for all healthcare personnel on pain management guidelines and protocols (Crawford et al., 2015).
Additional interventions may include implementation of rapid response teams to identify high risk cases quickly and provide appropriate treatment, physicians should be given the right tools and resources to monitor outcomes of their actions, increasing the use of patient-reported outcome measures to track improvements in patient experience (Herve & Horowitz, 2017).
