As GPs we know that osteoarthritis is a chronic, progressive condition with no cure. It is the most common diagnosis leading to hip and knee replacement surgery in Australia, with a whopping 80% increase in the rate of knee replacements from 2007 to 2018.

Given that people aged over 45 with osteoarthritis are twice as likely to view themselves as having ‘poor’ health, how should we best optimise management? What should you know about diagnosis? Which physical activity is best? How do you manage pain control and minimise fear of activity, empower self-management and know who to refer to?

Join Australian rheumatologist and world osteoarthritis expert Professor David Hunter, and senior clinical physiotherapist Carin Pratt as they guide you through best practice diagnosis and management of osteoarthritis in this on-demand webinar.

Upon completion of this activity the participant should be able to:

  • Apply best practice diagnosis, management and referral options as opposed to those that provide lower-value care.
  • Incorporate appropriate physical activity and exercise in your patient’s management plan to improve pain, function and quality of life.
  • Implement effective communication strategies for more effective osteoarthritis management and patient self-efficacy.
  • Engage with key health professionals who can help support your patient in a multidisciplinary setting.
  • Identify relationships between osteoarthritis and other comorbidities your patient may have, to enhance holistic care.

This activity is sponsored by GSK.
