Congress Goal and educational outcome

Crossfire and debate will encourage a lively discussion. This will generate a strong take-home message on Outpatient Arthroplasty

The goal of IMUKA 2019:

The goal is a two-day programme of presentations, panel discussions and interactive dialogue at the conference. We will present the key themes, ideas, and considerations for the current practice along with indications of some future trends. Bringing together a curated audience of critical stakeholders in pathway optimisation and orthopaedic surgeons will lead the way in the Outpatient Arthroplasty: Evidence-based Medicine saves healthcare. The ultimate goal is the ongoing, evidence-based improvement of personalised care of the orthopaedic consumers leading to Increased consumer safety, Increased efficiency, and Higher satisfaction rate.

Needs assessment

Healthcare costs keep on rising and available funds are lacking. Therefore ways are sought to change the healthcare strategies affecting patient care. Several government strategies show that transformation in Health Care will be the future

A basic understanding of the current limitations and future trends of Outpatient Arthroplasty is essential for orthopaedic surgeons. But maybe more important, the current curriculum of an orthopaedic doctor has hardly any content on Health Care Innovation. Besides the existing technology, no focus is seen on the potential of technology.

Two reports from 2017 are relevant to back up the importance of this conference

- Vision document Medical specialist 2025

- IBO Innovation in medical care (IBO= interdepartmental policy research)

The vision documents describe the need to change from disease-oriented and accountability towards value creation and people-oriented including network medicine and innovation in healthcare.

Educational outcome

Desired Objectives

• Critical stakeholders in pathway optimisation and orthopaedic surgeons attending this conference will leave with a clear understanding of the challenges and opportunities in Orthopaedics.

• Critical stakeholders in pathway optimisation and orthopaedic surgeons at the conference will be able to articulate how Evidence-based changes can be implemented in orthopaedic day-care delivery models.

• Attendees will understand which tools most efficiently engage orthopaedic surgeons and their consumers.

• Attendees will understand how Industry and technology companies and healthcare institutions can partner to implement effective change in the clinical setting.

Desired outcome

• New partner ventures/pilot projects between tech companies, insurers, and healthcare providers.

• Establish a leadership network in Orthopaedics and Outpatient Arthroplasty.

• Critical stakeholders in pathway optimisation and orthopaedic surgeons with broadened skills in enabling change, ideas for what could be changed, and the confidence to make it happen.

• The creation of a network of stakeholders linked through their experience at the conference that will become the key drivers of Outpatient Arthroplasty innovation.

Active learning and learner's engagement:

Active learning is promoted during this meeting by preselecting the crucial topics on Outpatient Arthroplasty which will be presented by the invited speakers. There is enough time allocated in the sessions for discussion/debate.

As there is a maximum of 200 participants and one auditorium it will be easy to confirm the attendance of the participants and participating in the discussions and voting will be monitored.

Feedback will be obligatory to get the certificate of attendance

Means for input of learners:

As the last 8 IMUKA meetings, the standard feedback form will be given to the attendees, and the will only get the certificate of attendance after returning this feedback form.
