AIM: To test the psychometric validity of the Good Perioperative Nursing Care Scale (GPNCS), a self-administered questionnaire, following translation and adaptation. INTRODUCTION: Patients' satisfaction with and experience of nursing care in orthopaedic or perioperative settings are currently not routinely measured and few standardized patient-reported experience measurement tools exist for these settings. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Cross-sectional survey...

BACKGROUND: A major goal of care for orthopaedic surgical patients is the achievement of their pre-morbid functional level or at least an improvement of their functional ability. However, patients with altered mental status can significantly impact this and other outcomes and influence the delivery of care. Patient mobilisation is a role shared by both nurses and physiotherapists. AIMS: To enhance the understanding of nurses and physiotherapists' experience in mobilising postoperative orthopaedic patients with altered mental status...

BACKGROUND: It is vital that patients take an active role in self-management of their chronic knee pain condition. The Chronic Knee Pain Program was developed to assist patients in managing their chronic condition and to improve their overall well-being. PURPOSE: The purpose of this pilot study was to determine the feasibility of a six-week self-management program and to explore whether it may assist in decreasing body mass index (BMI) and depression symptom severity and increase physical activity levels in obese adults with chronic knee pain...

OBJECTIVES: All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) are increasing in popularity and becoming larger and faster at a production level. As a Level I Trauma Center, we perceived a disproportionately high volume of ATV-related admissions. Our goal was to study injury patterns and severity in adult and pediatric populations. METHODS: All ATV-related trauma admissions at a single Level I trauma center were retrospectively analyzed over a seven-year period. RESULTS: On-road incidents were more likely to result in a higher average Injury Severity Score (ISS) (p < 0...

Pat Johnson, Chloe Griggs
The aim of this article is to share the experience of how a multi-disciplinary team worked together to develop the nursing role to incorporate the practitioners supporting mobilisation of a patient. The role developed nurses' competence, ensuring that the information and instruction patients received were consistent between therapists and nursing staff, but also supported the Enhanced Recovery Programme (2010). There were issues with the level of therapy support, especially out of hours. The team agreed a vision together, with a solution to the problem on how the mobilisation of patients post-surgery could be achieved...

Saskia Titman, Ami Hommel, Igor Dobrydnjov, Anders Johansson
BACKGROUND AND AIM: Research regarding patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty (THA) has shown no significant difference in postoperative pain with or without the use of local infiltration analgesia (LIA). The aim was to evaluate whether intra-operative LIA with Ropivacaine in patients undergoing THA under general anaesthesia reduces postoperative pain. METHOD: A randomised, placebo-controlled trial. Forty patients undergoing elective primary THA under general anaesthesia were allocated to an intervention group (RG) who received 150 ml of LIA or a placebo group (CG) who received 150 ml of saline solution...

OBJECTIVE: Better patient outcomes and more efficient healthcare could be achieved by predicting post hip fracture function at an early stage. This study aimed to identify independent predictors of mobility outcome one week post hip fracture surgery. METHODS: All hip fracture inpatients (n=77) were included in this 6 month prospective observational cohort study. Predictor variables were obtained on the first postoperative day and included premorbid function using the New Mobility Score (NMS)...

This paper describes a collaboration between orthopaedic nurses in Myanmar (Burma) and Australia. It aims to explores how that collaboration began and how it can grow and has grown. The unique needs and challenges of healthcare delivery in developing nations are discussed. Understanding these unique needs and challenges is vital in tailoring strategies to provide orthopaedic nurses in those countries with resources that are suitable to assist them in providing the highest level of quality care to their patients...

This study investigates functional status on Day 21 after dysvascular major lower limb amputation compared with one month pre-amputation and evaluates factors potentially influencing outcome. METHODS: A prospective cohort study design was used. Data were collected via in-person interviews using structured instruments and covered functional level (Barthel index 100) one month pre-amputation and on Day 21. Out of a consecutive sample of patients having major lower limb amputation (tibia, knee or femoral) (n = 105), 51 participated on Day 21 follow-up...

AIM: The aim of the study was to compare the effects of a preoperative position splint and skin traction on pain, comfort, complications, and satisfaction with the treatment and care for patients with hip fracture. METHOD: This randomized trial was conducted with a total of 68 patients with hip fracture in a tertiary care hospital in Turkey. Preoperatively, a position splint was applied to the patients in the intervention group (n = 34) and skin traction was applied to patients (n = 34) in the control group...
