Abstract (Swedish)
Nationellt kompetenscentrum för rörelseorganens sjukdomar

(NKO) är ett resurscentrum för kvalitetsregister inom

rörelseorganens sjukdomar. En förutsättning för en mer

rättvis vård är att indikationerna för behandling betraktas

likartat över hela landet. Evidensbaserade indikationer

för behandling av rörelseorganens sjukdomar har utarbetats.

Klargörande av aktuell indikationssättning för höft- och

knäledsartroplastik är nödvändig för att försöka förstå

skillnaderna i behandlingspraxis mellan vårdgivare.
Abstract
Well-functioning data registration systems require high competence both in the technical systems used for handling data and in the statistical methodology used for analysis. Consequently, The Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions and The National Board of Health and Welfare started the Swedish National Competence Centre for Musculoskeletal disorders, with the purpose for this institution to act as a support centre for quality registration in orthopaedic health care. For health care to be comparable nationwide, a consensus in the choice of treatment for each disorder is required. However, since significant variation in the frequency of elective surgical and non-surgical treatments can be seen between both clinics and... (More)
Well-functioning data registration systems require high competence both in the technical systems used for handling data and in the statistical methodology used for analysis. Consequently, The Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions and The National Board of Health and Welfare started the Swedish National Competence Centre for Musculoskeletal disorders, with the purpose for this institution to act as a support centre for quality registration in orthopaedic health care. For health care to be comparable nationwide, a consensus in the choice of treatment for each disorder is required. However, since significant variation in the frequency of elective surgical and non-surgical treatments can be seen between both clinics and different geographical areas, this does not seem to be the case. Groups from the orthopedic profession have therefore, together with NKO, developed evidence based guidelines for the treatment of hip and knee joint osteoarthritis, disc herniation, spinal stenosis, back pain, meniscus lesions, cruciate ligament injuries and also for shoulder and foot disorders. In addition NKO has developed methodology for the assessment of disease severity in patients receiving hip and knee joint arthroplasty. Knowledge of the current indications for hip and knee joint arthroplasty is essential in trying to explain regional differences in the choice of treatment. (Less)
