Latest Document on Surgical Prioritisation

In circumstances where resources are limited, such as occurred due to COVID-19 effects on health systems, prioritisation of treatment for different conditions is a difficult, but necessary process . The BHS and experts in the field of hip surgery have undertaken a formal consensus exercise to create a prioritisation document for hip surgery.

The BHS executive and a few experts reviewed the literature and formulated a list of hip conditions suggested to be relevant for prioritisation. The study then consisted of three rounds of questionnaires based on these conditions, with the consensus rating set at 70% a priori. In between each round the facilitators collected and presented the answers within a summary document, which was circulated to the experts for review prior to the next round.
