Hip dysplasia that causes osteoarthritis (OA) is a leading cause of disability in younger adults. Research and treatment for OA are challenged by the wide range of clinical manifestations, progression and many other factors that influence outcomes. A major goal is to limit pain, stiffness, functional limitations and disability. Therefore it is crucial to have measurement methods that are able to measure change in these clinical outcomes. The need for instruments that are sufficiently sensitive and responsive to change led to the development of a CAT instrument to measure pain, functional difficulty and disability for osteoarthritis research (OA-CAT) which demonstrated precision, reliability and efficiency in simulation studies. The aim of this study is to evaluate the OA-CAT in patients with hip dysplasia undergoing treatment which follows a previous OA-CAT study that already showed promise for measuring change in the clinical manifestations of lower extremity OA. Lunch will be provided, so please RSVP to Molly Marino (memarino@bu.edu), if you plan to attend. NOTE: This seminar will be available via webinar. WEBINAR INSTRUCTIONS 1.)
