Lynn lead a team from The Tweed Hospital’s orthopaedic service to design and implement an improved journey for patients having an elective hip or knee replacement.
The ‘Totally Hip (and Knee)’ project focussed on improving patient preparation for surgery and helping them manage at home after discharge; safely reducing their length of stay; and reducing the costs associated with this type of surgery.
The outcomes of the project, and other initiatives presented at the graduation ceremony, can be found at the ACI Innovation Exchange website, www.aci.health.nsw.gov.au
