Educational Activity Scope
The AAHKS Annual Meeting is designed to provide practicing orthopaedic surgeons with research-based, state-of-the-art information on diagnosis, surgical and non-surgical treatment options and overall management of hip and knee conditions.
This educational activity includes the review of the most current scientific research study findings, faculty and participant discussions and interactive symposia. It covers multiple clinical topics such as primary and revision total hip arthroplasty, primary and revision total knee arthroplasty, non-arthroplasty, infection, complications other than infection as well as health policy.
The Meeting is aimed at improving overall surgeon competence related to the care of patients with arthritis and degenerative disease.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:
- Synthesize the most current research study findings in hip and knee condition management
- Evaluate various surgical and non-surgical treatment options (e.g., primary total joint arthroplasty, revision total joint arthroplasty, non-arthroplasty) in hip and knee condition management
- Assess the efficacy of new treatment options through evidence-based data
- Interpret relevant healthcare policy
