NJR continues to share information through its direct work with patients
The NJR continues to publish and provide Public and Patient Guides for each joint type. Not only do the guides provide information about the NJR and joint surgery, they also give patients ideas on what questions they could ask their surgeon and information on where to find more information. The content is provided in easily understood, non-clinical terminology.
The registry also works closely with its Patient Network to ensure that patients help to make the decisions about how to present the information in the most useful way.
Keeping the patient perspective on the agenda
The NJR has an ongoing programme of regional events. These events are designed to provide hospital colleagues with updates on the work of the NJR and the benefits it brings to its stakeholders, including patients. It is also an opportunity to thank them all for their continued support in collecting and entering the data.
The patient representatives on the NJR Steering Committee have provided outstanding support to these events, ensuring that the patient perspective of the need for the NJR is not overlooked.
Patients in the strategic plan
The strategic plan outlines the NJR’s commitment to the involvement of patients and the public to ensure that the best interests of the patients are always at the centre of what the NJR does. This is through patient representatives on the NJR Steering Committee, the NJR Patient Network, and through patient group engagement. The NJR publishes a range of information for the patients and provides information to trusted third parties, such as NHS Choices, for publication.
