Description of intervention(s) / exposure
All patients undergoing hip, knee, shoulder or elbow arthroplasty at Barwon Health or SJOG are eligible for inclusion in the study.

Post-operative follow-up procedures vary between Barwon Health and SJOG.

At Barwon Health, study participants will be assessed in-person at University Hospital Geelong (UHG) 3-6 months following the operation. Participants will then be assessed via mail-out at 1 year, 5 years and 8 years post-op and then biennially thereafter. Participants with complications or suspected complications identified via mail-out will be invited to the UHG for in-person review.

At SJOG, study participants will be assessed via mail-out at 12 months following the operation. Patients will also undergo clinical review with their surgeon at intervals decided by the surgeon, which is not considered part of the registry.

Data will be collected with paper-based or electronic assessment tools and entered into the Standardised Orthopaedic Clinical Research and Treatment Evaluation Software (Socrates) or the REDCap data management tool hosted by Barwon Health.

Outcome measures include, where relevant:
Shoulders: Constant Shoulder Score, Oxford Shoulder Score, Quick Dash.
Hips: Oxford Hip Score, WOMAC, MAPT
Knees: Oxford Knee Score, Knee Society Score, WOMAC, MAPT
Elbows: Mayo Elbow Score, Quick Dash, ASES Elbow Assessment Score
All joints: EuroQolED-5D, Patient Satisfaction/VAS, global assessment of change.

Demographic information such as age, gender, weight, height, educational level, employment status and comorbidities will also be collected. Operative details such as prosthesis type will also be collected.

Summary
Brief summary
The primary aim of the Barwon Joint Replacement Registry is to monitor patients following joint replacement surgery that occurs at University Hospital Geelong and St John of God Hospital Geelong.

All patients undergoing joint replacement are routinely seen in pre-operative clinics as part of surgical planning. An Orthopaedic Coordinator will discuss the Registry with eligible patients and assist them, as required, to complete the relevant pre-operative assessment forms.

Post-operative follow-up procedures vary between Barwon Health and SJOG.

At Barwon Health, study participants will be assessed in-person at University Hospital Geelong (UHG) 3-6 months following the operation. Participants will then be assessed via mail-out at 1 year, 5 years and 8 years post-op and then biennially thereafter. Participants with complications or suspected complications identified via mail-out will be invited to the UHG for in-person review.

At SJOG, study participants will be assessed via mail-out at 12 months following the operation. Patients will also undergo clinical review with their surgeon at intervals decided by the surgeon, which is not considered part of the current study.

Public notes
The registry commenced as a quality improvement activity. At that stage, the project did not require formal ethics approval. Ethics approval was subsequently obtained as data were used for research purposes.
