Experimental: Pain Coping Skills Training
The pain coping skills training will be delivered by physical therapists in eight one-hour sessions by telephone over a 2-month perioperative period. Patients will be taught a variety of skills designed to improve maladaptive pain related thoughts and actions to enhance recovery following arthroplasty.
Behavioral: Pain Coping Skills Training
Active Comparator: Arthritis Education
The eight one-hour perioperative arthritis education sessions will be delivered by nurse educators via telephone and will use a presentation and discussion format. Figures and discussion sessions will present information on the nature of arthritis, what to expect following knee arthroplasty, treatment of osteoarthritis, the role of exercise, joint protection and making future treatment decisions.
Behavioral: Arthritis Education
Patients randomly assigned to this arm will undergo usual care following knee arthroplasty.
Other: Usual Care
- Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) Pain Scale [ Time Frame: twelve months ]A self report scale that quantifies the extent of function limiting pain. The scale ranges from 0 to 20 with higher scores denoting worse activity related pain.
- WOMAC Physical Function Scale [ Time Frame: twelve months ]A self report scale that quantifies the extent of difficulty with everyday activity. The scale ranges from 0 to 68 with higher scores denoting greater difficulty with daily function.
- 0 to 10 Verbal Pain Rating Scale [ Time Frame: twelve months ]An 11 point verbal pain rating scale with higher scores denoting higher pain intensity.
- Pain Catastrophizing Scale [ Time Frame: twelve months ]A scale that quantifies the extent to which a participant catastrophizes about their pain. Score range from 0 to 52 with higher scores denoting greater pain catastrophizing.
- Global Rating of Change Scale [ Time Frame: twelve months ]11 point scale ranging from -5 to +5 with higher scores denoting a greater recovery.
- Six-minute Walk Test [ Time Frame: twelve months ]Distance walked in six minutes.
- Short Physical Performance Battery [ Time Frame: twelve months ]The Short Physical Performance Battery measures actual physical performance of four common daily physical activities including standing balance, single standing from a chair, repeated standing from a chair, and a 4 meter walk test. Scores range from 0 to 12 with higher scores indicating better physical performance.
