NIH convenes Consensus Development Conference on Total Knee Replacement

anel will draft a statement addressing the questions listed above. The panel will present its draft statement to the public for comment at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, December 10. Following this public comment session, the panel will release its revised statement at a news conference at 2:00 p.m. and take questions from the media.

An evidence report on this topic, prepared by the Minnesota Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC), Minneapolis, Minnesota, under contract to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), will be considered by the panel. EPC evidence reports are comprehensive, systematic reviews and analyses of published scientific evidence. A summary of the Evidence Report on Total Knee Replacement will be available on December 10, 2003, the final day of the conference, at http://www.ahrq.gov/clinic/epcix.htm. The full report will be available on-line shortly thereafter.

The consensus statement is the report of an independent panel and is not a policy statement of the NIH or the federal government. The NIH Consensus Development Program was established in 1977 to resolve in an unbiased manner controversial topics in medicine. To date, NIH has conducted 116 consensus development conferences addressing a wide range of medical issues of importance to health care providers, patients, and the general public.

The primary sponsors of this conference are the NIH Office of Medical Applications of Research and the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases.
