About the Presentation:

Osteoarthritis (OA) is at the forefront of an exploding epidemic of non-communicable chronic diseases. It affects over 3 million Australians and is a leading cause of disability and health service utilisation. Beyond the pharmacological and surgical advances, there are population-based interventions that have proven effective for preventing the development of OA. These measures include lifestyle management, maintaining a healthy weight, remaining active, and avoiding joint injury. 

For the person with OA, management is typically inappropriate, which has enormous downstream activity consequences for health services and contributes to poor health outcomes. Modern health care systems are typically reactive and focused upon acute care whereas the management of OA is ideally efficient, coordinated and patient-centred to support integration of evidence into practice. Inflation in the cost of health care is driving changes to health systems that will not only enhance the organisational costs of OA delivery but also health outcomes. This presentation will focus on research and implementation activity targeting both disease prevention and evidence-based health service delivery.
