Turning a CPG into a Care Map

AAOS CPG  on DDH provides outline for standardized care

  Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a relatively  common pediatric condition, occurring in 3 to 4 of every 1,000 live births. If  left untreated, DDH can have lifelong implications—including disability and  total hip replacement at a young age. Even if providers suspect DDH, the early  signs of this condition are not always obvious; frank hip dislocation only  occurs in approximately 1 of 1,000 newborn infants.
