EXAMINING PSYCHOLOGICAL STATE IN PATIENTS PRESENTING FOR ARTHRITIS SURGERY
Grant number: 1035810 | Funding period: 2012 - 2016
Total joint replacement (TJR) is a common surgical procedure in Australia (80,000 per year). Pre-operative psychological distress has been reported to be between 30-60% in TJR patients and is associated with pain and poor recovery. Little is known about the nature of psychological distress in those presenting for TJR. This study aims to identify the psychological profile of TJR patients who experience suboptimal recovery and in doing so inform future programs that aim to enhance psychological well-being in patients on waiting lists for TJR
