 The new topics and updates this year will include implant scrutiny, developments with beyond compliance & ODEP, and report from the proposed ‘implant classification and choice’ working group. There will also be discussions on network reconfigurations in response to the BESS/BOA/GIRFT Elbow SPG. There will be a presentation on current approaches to peri-prosthetic fractures with an intention of setting up a working group on that topic.
