Purpose: To adapt high quality CPG recommendations to promote optimal physiotherapy care for KOA and HOA in Hong Kong (HK).
Methods: The ADAPTE framework guided the adaptation process. We searched six electronic databases and eight guideline clearinghouses. Two independent reviewers critically appraised eligible guidelines using the AGREE II tool. Recommendations from high-quality CPGs were extracted using matrices tables. A voting-based consensus among 11 relevant interdisciplinary experts was used to include recommendations with or without modifications to suit their applicability in HK.
Results: Of 6,068 citations, three out of 13 eligible CPGs were deemed high-quality, yielding 99 recommendations for KOA and 78 for HOA. In total, 32 and 25 recommendations were adapted for KOA and HOA, respectively. Of them, exercises were strongly recommended for both conditions.
Conclusion: This is the first study to use internationally recognized standardized procedure to adapt CPGs to local context in rehabilitation.
Implications: This study considered health systems, cultural, and contextual determinants to enhance the implementability and acceptability of these recommendations in HK. Future studies should evaluate the effectiveness of implementing this adapted CPG to improve physiotherapy care for people with KOA/HOA.
