Abstract

The Clinical Practice Guideline for Evaluation of Psychosocial Factors Influencing Recovery from Adult Orthopaedic Trauma is based on a systematic review of current scientific and clinical research. The purpose of this clinical practice guideline is to improve outcomes after adult orthopaedic trauma by evaluating, and addressing, the psychosocial factors that affect recovery. This guideline contains one recommendation to address eight psychosocial factors after military and civilian adult orthopaedic trauma that may influence clinical, functional, and quality of life recovery. Furthermore, it addresses additional factors that may be associated with greater biopsychosocial symptom intensity, limitations, and/or diminished health-related quality of life. However, this guideline did not evaluate effective treatment strategies for the treatment or prevention of psychosocial factors. This guideline cannot be fully extrapolated to the treatment of children or adolescents. In addition, the work group highlighted the need for additional research because studies of general traumatic injuries do not always generalize to specific orthopaedic populations.
