General practice plays an important role within the Australian health care system in the prevention, early detection and management of chronic disease.
The nature of general practice provides opportunity for early screening for chronic disease and the address of preventable risk factors.
GPs are well placed to provide care and coordination, as well as to play a monitoring role, for the multidisciplinary management of chronic disease. The GP undertakes this role in consultation with other medical specialists as required.
This guideline on the management of osteoarthritis presents recommendations to assist GPs in managing patients with osteoarthritis.
The guideline focuses on short term care, long term care planning and management and coordination of multidisciplinary care needs.
It is accompanied by algorithms and resources to assist in implementation of the recommendations.
