The purpose of this project is to decrease the incidence of postoperative pain in the total knee and hip arthroplasties population by using non-pharmacological methods. For this project I developed an educational electronic PowerPoint for the staff at OrthoCincy to review and understand the benefits of the non-pharmacological methods that will be offered to patients. The methods included in the voiceover PowerPoint are acupuncture, cryotherapy, electrotherapy, and guided imagery. The staff will have a better understanding of the approaches outlined on a handout available for patients, to answer any questions they may have as well as make any necessary referrals.
