International Osteoarthritis Management Programs aka “Joint Effort”  
The focus of this group is to provide a forum for persons engaged in osteoarthritis management programs to come together and collaborate.  Our major foci are to ascertain the core competencies of health professionals managing osteoarthritis, to develop educational resources to support that need, to develop consumer resources and to encourage standardized outcome measurement in clinical practice. The focus of this years’ discussion will be on providing an update on core capabilities and research collaboration efforts to harmonize outcomes and combine international data to investigate the comparative effectiveness of OA management program service delivery models for people presenting with different clinical characteristics.
