The Arthritis Alliance of Canada (AAC), The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) and the Centre for Effective Practice (CEP) have joined forces to develop the Osteoarthritis Tool to help family physicians and other healthcare providers understand that Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common, treatable, chronic illness by providing a tool that helps them:

    • identify, assess, and monitor OA
    • equip patients for high quality self-management
    • recommend specific non-pharmacologic and pharmacologic therapies

We encourage you to raise your voice and join the movement to support this important initiative:

    • post to your website
    • post to Facebook
    • post to Twitter using the hashtag #OATool; or
    • promote this initiative among your professional networks, such as LinkedIn, using the hashtag #OATool
    • share your impressions of the tool and how it's helped in your practice in the AAC newsletter!
