The ERP is designed to support physical recovery – for example, restoring function, strength and range of movement – as well as minimising physiological stress to the organs and major systems during surgery. Importantly, it also recognises the importance of the psychological aspects of recovery, offering information and support that helps patients to make informed choices at every stage of their treatment journey. Our aim is to closely involve you in decision-making, as well as inviting you to involve a relative or friend to act as a ‘coach’ and support you.
As part of our patient education programme, you will receive information on every aspect of their treatment and will have an opportunity to discuss any part of their treatment with a member of their healthcare team.
After surgery, the ERP focuses on getting patients out of bed and moving their new joint as soon as possible, supported by effective pain relief. This approach is backed up by a multitude of research papers, which have shown that the earlier a person gets out of bed and starts walking, eating, and drinking after their operation, the faster their rehabilitation is likely to be and the better their outcome from surgery.
