Patients, clinicians & researchers partnering to address the safety of joint replacement

Joint replacement surgery can be a pain. Talking about it shouldn’t be.
Register for a roundtable discussion to put your best (hip, knee) forward. Let’s bring the patient voice into joint replacement research.
Patient-engaged research can help fix problems like the safety of implantable devices. Over the past year, we met with patients, advocates, researchers, clinicians, and health systems leaders in Boston, Chicago and New York City to talk about device selection as a major factor in joint replacement safety. We believe that the choice of which device to use is an important health care decision that can be guided with better evidence.
Participating in this patient-led project can lead to changes in the way care is delivered. For example, through your involvement, you may contribute to improvements in the safety of joint replacement and implant devices. Or you may help initiate improvements in the way your individual care is delivered, like making joint replacement follow-up at home possible.
Bringing STakeholders Together for Engagement in Research for the Selection of Arthroplasty Implant Devices (BeTTER SAID) is the name of our webinar and roundtable series. This project is funded through a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award (2228-GHLF).

- Prepare patients to work with clinicians and other stakeholders in arthroplasty research; and
- Discuss a research agenda that would involve patients, clinicians and other stakeholders.
