This manual is intended to serve as a resource for organizations that are interested in collecting PROMs and implementing CIHI standards for PROMs in hip and knee arthroplasty.
Wait times for priority procedures, including provincial data in 5 priority areas: cancer treatment, cardiac care, diagnostic imaging, joint replacement and sight restoration.
Fewer Canadians received surgery for cataracts and hip and knee replacements within the recommended wait times last year compared with 3 years ago. However, wait times for more urgent procedures such as radiation therapy and hip fracture repair remained stable over this same time period. Learn more about benchmarks for treatment and wait times for priority procedures across Canada.
