Bone and Joint Canada (BJC) has developed partnerships across Canada with health care providers committed to the management of people presenting with musculoskeletal disorders. Working through clinical, administrative and policy leaders in each of the provinces, BJC has developed a network approach to improving system performance and patient care. By working together and building on these relationships there are significant opportunities for improving the care for MSK patients across Canada through the next decade.
BJC will continue to function as a knowledge translation agency to work with the health care providers across Canada to implement best practices in the management of MSK conditions as new research becomes available. BJC will continue to focus on its key surgical programs of hip and knee replacement as well as hip fracture. Work will be expanded into the primary care sector through the implementation of the framework for low back pain and OA that were developed through 2014. Finally work will also continue in injury prevention through the ongoing implementation of successful MSK injury prevention strategies.
BJC has worked with its partners across the country to successfully implement a number of projects for which further information can be found on this web site.
