In this randomised study a proactive care and rehabilitation intervention is compared to the current care and rehabilitation in patients undergoing primary hip and knee replacement surgery.

A cost efficacy analysis in a societal perspective is made from effect data in the randomised controlled study together with cost data gathered during the perioperative and postoperative period.

If the proactive care and rehabilitation intervention is cost effective the intervention is going to be implemented in Ringkøbing County. This implementation proces is measured within a monitoring project of all patients receiving hip or knee replacement surgery in Ringkøbing County in the period 2003 to 2007.
