Practice guidelines - Posted on Apr 01 2008 - Updated on Jan 20 2010

The aims of this guideline are :

  • to help doctors make the right decision when prescribing physiotherapy after rotator cuff surgery or shoulder arthroplasty by enabling them to assess whether the patient should be hospitalised in order to receive such care

  • to specify the information that needs to be exchanged between the surgeon and the physiotherapist in order to implement the patient’s postoperative rehabilitation, wherever the rehabilitation may take place.
