AAOS Moves Forward on Quality Initiatives

Board approves 3 new CPGs, 1 new AUC

During its meeting on Sept. 5, 2014, the AAOS Board of Directors took several steps on quality issues, approving three new clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) and one new appropriate use criteria (AUC). The CPGs and AUC were presented by Kevin J. Bozic, MD, MBA, chair of the AAOS Council on Research and Quality.

Hip Fracture CPG
The new evidence-based CPG on “Management of Hip Fractures in the Elderly” is based on a systematic review of the current scientific and clinical research. This guideline has been endorsed by the Orthopaedic Trauma Association, The Hip Society, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, and the U.S. Bone and Joint Initiative. The purpose of this clinical practice guideline is to help improve treatment and management based on the current evidence.
