Report on Managing Hip and Knee Osteoarthritis in Canada
Bone and Joint Canada hosted a meeting of key experts in osteoarthritis (OA) to review the status of care for individuals with hip and knee OA across the country and make recommendations on the future direction. Following a day of presentations and active discussion a number of recommendations were made including: expand on our successes; promote earlier diagnosis, education and management; embed our programs in self-management and physical activity; and to use our data and leverage technology. The report including the recommendations is available here. Managing hip and knee osteoarthritis in Canada_Final_June2019
