Clinical Practice Guideline on the Diagnosis and Prevention of Periprosthetic Joint Infections
Clinical practice guidelines (CPG) provide evidence-based recommendations for current orthopaedic diagnostic, treatment, and postoperative procedures. Multidisciplinary clinician work groups and AAOS staff work together to synthesize published research with the aim of providing a transparent and robust summary of the research findings for a particular orthopaedic disease topic.
AAOS encourages use of our guidelines and provides resources to facilitate the implementation of guideline recommendations. To assist with this effort we offer a range of tools to help share information, including PowerPoint presentations, Care Pathways, patient handouts, clinician checklists, plain language summaries, and Impactful Statements – all of which are fully vetted by content experts. Note that these resources are available exclusively to AAOS members and your login is required to access them.
AAOS journals and news sources often publish additional information about quality programs and guidelines. Note that these resources are available exclusively to AAOS members and your login is required to access them.
