Thesis title: Psychological health and total knee replacement

Supervisors: Alison HARMER , Sarah DENNIS

Thesis abstract:

�p�Total knee replacement is a high cost procedure occurring at increasing rates worldwide. Despite rapid advances in recovery times for most patients, a significant proportion of people experience longer hospital stays, worse outcomes and dissatisfaction after surgery. This thesis will examine the influence of psychological health on hospital length of stay with three studies: a systematic review, an observational study of a typical public hospital cohort undergoing knee replacement, and a pilot randomised controlled trial exploring a novel physiotherapy intervention for those waiting for surgery based on a psychological approach.�/p�
