Arthroplasty Clinical Outcomes Registry NSW - ACORN


ACORN was established in 2012 to provide information on the patient-relevant outcomes of joint replacement surgery. . ACORN collects information directly from patients about their expectations of surgery and the actual outcomes of their hip or knee replacement. . Specifically, ACORN was designed to provide standardized, reliable and near-complete information from multiple hospitals, and to use this information to drive improvement by informing future decision making by the public, surgeons, and hospitals. . ACORN has developed guidelines and protocols around data collection and dissemination, and a Lead Human Research Ethics Committee has approved the project. . In the future, it may be possible to compare the patient reported outcomes across similar sites. .
