The 39th EBJIS Annual Meeting

EBJIS septic arthritis guideline project

In a multinational cooperation we are working on an evidence-based practice guideline in a user-friendly format for clinical practice.

Nine workgroups are currently reporting and evaluating the scientific literature focusing on the following topics:

  • Diagnostic work-up and criteria
  • Microbiological methods
  • Initial surgical treatment
  • Initial antimicrobial treatment
  • Rehabilitation and joint mobilization
  • Treatment duration and evalutation
  • Post-arthroscopic infection
  • Uncommon microbiology
  • Paediatric arthritis


After a few rounds of internal review, we expect to send the final guideline draft to the EBJIS members for further comments by 1st of April, 2021.
