This is an interesting Patient Experience measure though I would appreciate a more general/ broader measure around shared informed decision making for bone replacements anywhere in body. How a person feels after a replacement - ones experience can be much differet than how well they are moving or functioning after a replacement.

The American Medical Association (AMA) is extremely concerned to see that the testing of this measure occurred during the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE). The impact of COVID-19 has been devastating to physician practices and some patient visits and treatments were postponed during the early months of the COVID-19 PHE and many others have foregone those services completely. As a result, some patients did not receive the care they needed to prevent or manage their condition. We agree with the four oncologists who were unwilling to participate in the face validity assessment given their concerns with the impact of the pandemic on sample size and performance scores. We believe that additional testing outside of the PHE must be completed before this measure is considered for endorsement.
