Description:MobilE-PRO evaluates how patients perceive their health-related quality of life before total knee/hip replacement and one year after. The study also investigates the driving factors influencing respective patient-reported outcomes. One main goal is to investigate how well outcomes can be predicted and if respective results can be used to support shared decision-making between doctors and patients.
Aim:The aim of MobilE-PRO is to improve outcomes of total knee/hip replacement for inpatient care in order to support high mobility and social participation until high age.
Methods:•    Recruitment of over 2,000 patients with TKR/THR from one clinic
•    Usage of generic and disease-specific instruments to measure health-related quality of life before and one year after  surgery
•    Linkage of patient-based case data and clinic-based cost data
•    Analysis of effects and cost-effectiveness of different intervention paths
•    Evaluation and identification of possible predictors of patient-reported outcomes
•    Evidence-based deduction of possible recommendations for shared decision-making
