It's a medical scenario that's all too common: patient has health issue and makes visit to physician, who then makes diagnosis and then independent decision about patient's treatment. But a paradigm shift is taking place, where the patient is an integral part of the treatment decision-making process, according to a special editorial published in the August 2006 issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Orthopaedic patient-centered care, defined by The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) as "the provision of safe, effective and timely musculoskeletal care achieved through cooperation between the orthopaedic surgeon, and informed, respected patient (and family) and a coordinated health care team" is necessary for patients to get the most out of their medical care. Now, the authors argue, is a critical time to support and facilitate the development of a patient-centered care model in the field of orthopaedic surgery.
