Study hypothesis

This prospective randomised study will assess the effectiveness of formal pre-admission education for patients awaiting total knee replacement surgery using video presentation and physiotherapist input. The video contains information about the routine admission of a patient undergoing total knee arthroplasty. The emphasis of the video is aimed at educating the patient on what they need to do to achieve the optimal outcome post-operatively. Analysis of patient satisfaction with this method of patient education will be compared between the groups as well as their post-operative rehabilitation progress and length of hospital stay. Results of this project have important implications for improving clinical outcomes, quality assurance and reducing hospital costs within the NHS.
