of the NAHR
The creation of a Non Arthroplasty
Hip Register was unanimously supported by the Membership of the British
Hip Society at the Annual General Meeting in Torquay (March 2011). The
formation of the NAHR has at all times been an open process and all BHS
members are encouraged to contribute and comment on any aspect of the
project. The current Minimum Dataset and all Policy Documents are available
for review from the documents page. Please direct
comments to any member of the BHS Executive or the NAHR Subcommittee or
through Claire Wilson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Scope of the NAHR
The NAHR has been set for data entry on any type of hip condition and/or
surgery other than arthroplasty and the treatment of acute fracture. Data
can be entered for patients who do not undergo surgery for any specific
condition so that their clinical course can be followed.
Clinicians can use the Register to collect and display comprehensive outcome
and audit data for all of their own patients using scores and outcome
measures of their own choice. For those wanting to collect their own data
tuition on how to do this will be given by Bluespier although the NAHR
site has been set up to be used intuitively. More information will follow.
Alternatively clinicians may choose to facilitate only collection of the
initial Minimum Data Set (as they do with the NJR) and leave the Registry
to collect further outcome data. The MDS Forms will be available for printing
out when the Register is launched and the clinician will merely have to
arrange for someone to enter the data onto the NAHR website on their behalf.
No other clinician, including members of the NAHR Subcommittee will be
able to view an individual surgeons data or outcomes. All data will be
