Project: Pre-operative anemia correction in hip and knee arthroplasty

The aim of Dr. Lett’s project was to address pre-operative anemia rates in orthopedic join replacement patients. Through his CQIP project, Dr. Lett found that two thirds of patients who were undergoing surgery for hip and knee arthroplasty were anemic before their surgeries. As part of his project, his team developed a letter and toolkit for patients and their family doctor to optimize anemia during the 9-12 months from signing consent and their surgical date.
