Prevention in the management of musculoskeletal conditions


A guide for practice nurses

Prevention in the management of musculoskeletal conditions


Prevention in the management of musculoskeletal conditions: A guide for practice nurses has been developed as part of the Implementation and Dissemination of Musculoskeletal Clinical Guidelines in General Practice Project.

The guideline is intended as a resource for nurses employed in general practice to assist them in improving the care of people with osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis and idiopathic juvenile arthritis.

It is recognised that these conditions are chronic in nature and as such require planned multidisciplinary team care over an extended period of time.

Practice nurses are part of this team, and as such require clinical and organisational skills to enhance practice capacity in order to manage chronic disease care for patients.
