The Rapid Recovery Programme

The aim of the programme is to enable a quick yet safe recovery from a hip or knee replacement operation. 

Reduced hospital stays improve patient satisfaction and aiming for a timely discharge promotes excellent team communication for professionals.
With everyone involved in the process working towards a common goal, the patient is headed for a “rapid recovery”.

There are four main elements of the Rapid Recovery programme:

Process Optimisation:

Standardising protocols and pathways ensures everyone knows what to expect and when to expect it. Patients are fully educated and informed, and the date of discharge is carefully planned beforehand. This enables early mobilisation and faster recovery.

Clinical Enhancements:

Evidence and practice based recommendations on surgical approaches and pain management that lead to better-quality procedures and improved clinical outcomes.
Supported by our independent Rapid Recovery Advisory Board.

Data Collection:

Data collection on patient demographics & characteristics, patient satisfaction, functional recovery and re-admissions.

Communications Toolkit:

Easy to use resource to provide pro-active positive news about the Rapid Recovery program. Includes printable resources and templates for PR materials.
