Description:

This learning program is designed to introduce you to the clinical management of osteoarthritis (OA) from a patient’s perspective. The program begins by introducing you to the patient, Maria, as she visits her family physician to seek advice about knee stiffness. While Maria’s case is representative, it is important to understand that OA affects a much broader spectrum of patients in many situations quite different from Maria’s. Patients diagnosed with OA may be male or female, thin or obese, and middle aged or much older. They may experience symptoms in their knees, hips, hands, or other joints, and their condition may be inherited or brought on by excessive wear, among other reasons. After her initial visit, you will follow Maria through her encounters with the various health care professionals working on her case. This will help you to gain a better understanding of a typical patient’s progress through assessment, diagnosis, and management of OA.

Upon completion of this learning program, you will be able to:

  • Identify how symptoms of osteoarthritis can impact a patient.
  • Recognize the health care professionals involved in the management of osteoarthritis as well as their roles.
  • Describe the radiographic characteristics and staging of osteoarthritis.
  • Discuss how health care professionals measure pain and other osteoarthritis symptoms.
  • Compare the nonsurgical treatment options available for the management of osteoarthritis.
  • Recall the surgical treatment options available to patients when conventional therapies fail.
