Glenohumeral Joint Osteoarthritis

Clinical Practice Guideline on Glenohumeral Joint Osteoarthritis

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. 

Measure 109, Osteoarthritis Function and Pain

In 2014, the AAOS executed a measure transition agreement with the American Medical Association/Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement (AMA/PCPI) to assume the measure maintenance and stewardship responsibilities for the Osteoarthritis: Function & Pain Assessment (OAFP) measure.

This report describes updates made to the OAFP measure during the measure evaluation process, specifically background information on the measure and its development, a description of the update, the impacts of the changes on the measure cohort and outcome, and overall measure results.
