  • Overview

    With limited treatment options available, the management of osteoarthritis-related pain remains challenging. This issue is especially relevant for patients with various comorbidities or who experience healthcare inequality. Therefore, implementation of a “whole-patient” osteoarthritis pain management approach is essential to maximize outcomes. This is especially true in vulnerable populations, and provider decision-making must include patient-centric factors such as biopsychosocial considerations, use of assessment tools for individual pain and function, and individualized care in line with a patient’s goals, preferences, and values.

    Let us guide you through a step-by-step case-based learning simulation that will enable you to incorporate new management strategies into your osteoarthritis medical practice—strategies that will better engage patients in their own care and lead to improved treatment outcomes.
