Improving Orthopaedic Services

Improving Orthopaedic Services
The Action On Orthopaedics programme and the Orthopaedic Services Collaborative gave many clinical teams an excellent opportunity to review and improve how their services are organised. Modern orthopaedic services depend on an effective multi-disciplinary team, and the Collaborative and Action On Orthopaedics programmes demonstrated the potential for all professional disciplines to contribute to better care for patients.

New roles for nurses and allied health professionals mean that they will take on some tasks previously carried out by medical staff. These new roles will need appropriate training and supervision to ensure that quallity is maintained, but will free medical staff to do the work that only they can do.

The aim of this guide is not to define absolute standards of best practice, but to spread common-sense ideas and to stimulate thinking.
