Clinician Checklists

AAOS develops checklists in an effort to improve clinician decision-making and clinician-patient discussion. All checklists are developed via the appropriate use criteria (AUC) process using a modified Delphi method. To view the AUC process for creating checklists, please view the AUC Methodology document.
