2 Hours' CPD: Optimising the Outcome of Hip & Knee Replacements

Himself a keen sportsman (having completed over 15 marathons) Mr Benedict Rogers, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, understands the desire of patients to get back onto their feet quickly and so has designed this evening course to share his experience in what health professionals can do to optimise patient recovery post-surgery. 
 
At present in the UK, 190 000 total hip and knee replacements are performed per year, meaning many will be seen by the Allied Health Professional both pre- and post- operatively. Over the course of the evening, Mr Rogers will discuss what investigations are needed when examining the hip and knee in order to ascertain which patients would benefit from surgical intervention. We will look at the patient pathways available and the methods that can be used to treat a range of hip and knee problems both independently, and as part of a multidisciplinary team.
 
Furthermore, this course will cover the current surgical options available to patients, their aims and expected outcomes. Using a series of case studies, Mr Rogers will demonstrate how best to optimise outcomes of surgery and how to best manage patient expectations.
