Table 2

Concordance between the advanced practice physiotherapist and orthopaedic surgeons on knee and hip primary diagnoses (n=120)
Raw agreement proportion (%) Cohen’s kappa 95% CI
Overall 106/120 (88) 0.86 0.80 – 0.93
Hip 9/11 (82)
Knee 97/109 (89) 0.87 0.79 – 0.94
  Osteoarthritis 41/43 (95)
  ACL tear 12/12 (100)
  Meniscal injury 18/20 (90)
  Patellofemoral syndrome 12/14 (86)

Cohen’s kappa could not be calculated because of high concordance and small number of hip cases (n=11).

For knee disorders, raw agreement proportions (%) for selected common knee pathologies are also presented.
