The Role of Patient Expectations in Traumatic Orthopedic Outcomes-TEFTOM EURASIA
Prediction trial, up to 10 sites in Asia and Europe
To better understand the "success" or "failure" after orthopedic trauma surgery by developing a model that can be applied clinically as a user-friendly "baseline" questionnaire - capable of predicting "success" or "failure" based on a patient's pre-surgical expectations of their final outcome and to validate a novel outcomes measure (TOM).
To assess the psychometric properties of predictive validity, internal consistency and reproducibility of the trauma expectation factor (TEF) in the Eurasian population.
To assess the psychometric properties of criterion validity, internal consistency,reproducibility, and sensitivity to change of the TOM in the Eurasian population.
Key questions related to patient and surgeon expectations:
- How different, or similar, are patient and surgeon expectations?
- Do expectations change over time?
- Do patient expectations predict outcomes in validated measures use today?
