Screening patients for total knee arthroplasty and testing a multidiciplinary intervention to improve outcomes (The MULTIKNEE trial)

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures
worldwide and is regarded to be effective in relieving pain. However, 6-34% experience
chronic postsurgical pain. Although a number of studies have examined predictors of chronic pain after TKA, an evidencebased screening tool designed to identify patients at risk of poor outcomes is lacking.

Development of a screening tool for predicting chronic pain in total knee arthroplasty

The aim of this study is to expand our knowledge and develop a screening tool that can predict chronic pain in patients undergoing TKA. This study consists of 3 parts.

Phase 1) A meta-analysis to ensure that the screening tool contains relevant predictors identified in prior research.

Phase 2) Evaluation of potential screening tool items by obtaining feedback from both patients and orthopedic surgeons using the Delphi method.

Phase 3) Evaluation of the final screening tool with regard to reliability and validity using a longitudinel design. This project will serve as the basis for a future intervention study aiming to reduce the impact of risk factors for developing chronic pain after TKA.
