Event description

Description

Joint Camp is a free, 60-minute educational session for individuals who are having, or are thinking about, knee or hip joint replacements.

Joint Camp is presented by team members who regularly assist patients on their joint journey, including nurses and therapists. Topics covered include an explanation of joint pain, physical and occupational therapy preparation, how to prepare the home for safety, what to bring with to the hospital and what to expect the day of surgery. In addition, patients will learn about available services to help them plan for recovery and going home, including swing bed, short-term rehabilitation, home health and outpatient therapy.

Patients are also encouraged to bring along a support person to Joint Camp. The support person will work with the patient to learn therapeutic exercises and expectations for post-surgical care.
