Frequently asked questions

What is pre-admission joint school?

Hospitals participating in the no-gap joint replacement program offer patients the opportunity to attend a pre-admission joint school.

The pre-admission joint school is run by participating hospitals and surgeons, and may include things such as:

  • A hospital tour and the opportunity to meet the team of staff that will be looking after you during your hospital admission  
  • Information on exercises to perform both before and after your surgery  
  • Education on mobility aids such as crutches or anything else you may need when returning home 

It’s best to contact your participating hospital or surgeon to find out what services are included in the pre-admission joint school offered by your participating hospital.
