Beskrivelse

The objectives of the SICAM-trial are to develop, perform, and evaluate a complex intervention of spouses’ involvement through case management in fast-track treatment programmes, to improve the post-discharge functional status of older patients after total hip replacement.



The trial consists of three studies:

Study 1: A systematic review of the intervention literature of spouses’ involvement through case management, with regards to procedure of interventions, settings, primary outcomes and effects, will be conducted as evidence base for developing the complex intervention.

Study 2: An intervention involving spouses through case management will be disseminated, to improve older patients’ post-discharge functional status after total hip replacements in fast-track treatment programmes using a two group experimental design with repeated measures.

Study 3: A qualitative post-intervention study will be conducted to explore and describe spouses’ experiences of case management in older patients’ fast-track treatment programmes during total hip replacement.



The SICAM-trial is expected to provide original knowledge about the importance of involving spouses as a resource for older patients going through total hip replacement in fast-track treatment programmes.
