Your views on osteoarthritis care and a chance to win $500!
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis and affects about 10% of the population in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The prevalence and impact of OA are expected to rise dramatically in coming decades, which will have significant implications for the primary health care nursing workforce.
An international team is investigating confidence in disease knowledge and clinical skills and attitudes related to osteoarthritis care among clinicians (family practice nurses, family physicians, family physician registrars, and physical therapists) and trainees (physical therapy students and medical students) in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The data will be used to inform professional development and workforce capacity-building strategies.
