In this study we are seeking to understand what the effect of patient participation in their postoperative care activities has to overall patient experience and satisfaction. A multimedia animation intervention delivered via iPadTM that provides information about the goals of care for each day after total knee replacement surgery, from day one until day of discharge. We believe that if patients are given information about their goals of care for the day, this will increase their capability to participate in postoperative care activities such as pain management and mobilisation activities.
The results of this study will be collated in a PhD thesis to fulfill requirements of the Doctor of Philosophy degree at Deakin University. A further study on patient participation in their health care episode relatated to total hip replacement has commenced .
