AAHKS has launched a new website for patients that gives them a centralized, credible source for hip and knee replacement surgery information. The new site represents a collaboration between the Patient and Public Relations Committee, Web and Social Media Committee and Evidence Based Medicine Committee. Peer reviewed articles and videos are available now in an attractive format that is easy to navigate. Content is reviewed annually, and more will be added in the coming year. Suggestions for additional content or links to good external resources are always welcome.
“As with so much of our lives, patients find the internet to be an increasingly important source for health information. Our Committee is aiming to create content for our patients with the goal of making the AAHKS site as the go-to place for information regarding hip and knee replacement,” says David F. Dalury, MD, Patient and Public Relations Chair. Please share this new site with your patients by linking to it from your practice, institution and social media sites http://hipknee.aahks.org.
