Description

  • When is it time for surgery?
  • The latest in operative procedures:
  • Total Joint Arthroplasty
  • Bipolar Hip Arthroplasty
  • Open Reduction Internal Fixation
  • Megaprothstetics
  • Key strategies to prevent post-operative complications/risks
  • Achieving success: Rehabilitation goals and discharge planning
  • Joint Commission S.C.I.P. (Surgical Care Improvement Project) Protocols
  • Pain management techniques to meet realistic patient goals

Joint replacement surgeries have become common place – over a million performed per year. Paul M. Levy, MSN, BS, RN, ONC is excited to share his expertise in orthopedics to provide a better understanding of Total Joint Replacement Surgery:

  • Pre-operative diagnosis: When is it time for surgery? Alternative treatments?
  • Multiple joint replacements & the implications of each
  • The key to preventing post-operative complications/risks
  • All the options: Megaprosthetic replacements, fixations, joint revisions…
  • Achieving success: Rehabilitation goals and discharge planning

Recent changes to CMS reimbursement (Value Based Purchasing or VBP) processes have put a premium on ensuring patient satisfaction is achieved. Failure to meet baseline measurements in HCAHPS scores will result in decreased reimbursements for hospitals. In addition, 30-day readmission rates also will affect VBP scores. This recording will provide strategies to address the following areas that can impact VBP:

  • Co-morbidity – discussion of medical management of preexisting conditions
  • Pain Management – setting and meeting realistic pain management goals
  • Communication – focus on patient education and follow-up care
  • Readmission – focus on tools to reduce infection and post-operative complications

This recording will leave with you a clear understanding of the entire process from start to finish for total joint patients. This will in turn allow interdisciplinary healthcare professionals to help their patients better understand the process, have realistic expectations, and improved satisfaction following surgical interventions.
