Rationale and aims: The importance of evaluating postoperative recovery with consideration to the patient’s perspective has been emphasized. The aim of this study was to demonstrate how the recovery-specific Postoperative Recovery Profile (PRP) questionnaire can be used to evaluate patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) after hip- and knee replacement in the enhancement of clinical quality and the person-centeredness of clinical services. Method: Patients undergoing primary total knee- and hip replacement were eligible for this longitudinal follow-up study. The participants completed the PRP questionnaire on repeated occasions. In this paper, data from Day 3 and Month 1 after discharge were used. The change in recovery, between the two measurement occasions, on item-, dimensional- and global levels, both for each patient and for the group, were evaluated. Results: A total number of 75 patients were included. One month after discharge the median PRP score was 13 (partly recovered) out of 19. Recovery changes towards lower levels of problems/difficulties were shown in both item-, dimensional- and global levels of recovery month 1 after discharge, as compared with Day 3. The group of patients was homogenous in change. Conclusions: We demonstrated that the PRP questionnaire can be used to evaluate postoperative recovery after hip- and knee replacement surgery on item-, dimensional- and global levels. Data from each recovery level can be useful for quality development and in informing increases in the person-centeredness of clinical services. The global population scores can be used to evaluate treatment effect on a group of patients. It can also be used to define endpoints in follow-up studies.
