Project goal: The project's main objective is to identify how personal, social and economic factors, as well as the ethnic background of patients, influence outcome in hip arthroplasty. Our hypothesis is that these factors affect outcome and become more pronounced for patients who undergo surgery in the countries to which they have emigrated in comparison with those who undergo surgery in their home countries. If this proves to be the case, these studies can provide a basis for scientifically based improvement in care of patients with hip osteoarthritis and immigrant backgrounds.
