We applied the grounded theory method to explore the post discharge concerns of older people after fall-induced hip fracture repair. It was anticipated that this understanding would increase awareness of issues that may impact on recovery and rehabilitation. Method: Semi-structured interviews were carried out with 19 older people after discharge home. Initially, purposive sampling guided data collection and thereafter theoretical sampling was employed. Interviews were analysed using the constant comparative method.
