Brief Summary:
The aim of this study was to explore the patient experience of the STAR care pathway and their journey of recovery from total knee replacement over 12 months
with a focus on the acceptability of the pathway and its impact on the management of postsurgical pain after total knee replacement.
Telephone interviews were conducted with 29 trial participants after they had been recruited into the STAR trial.
One-to-one semi-structured interviews were conducted with patients randomised to the STAR care pathway between February 2018 and January 2020.
A purposive sample of 27 participants selected from the intervention group were interviewed after participants had completed the final trial follow-up at 12-months after randomisation.
All follow-up interviews were face-to-face. The final sample included 10 men and 17 women, aged 55 to 84 years (mean 71 years).
