IMPROVING CONSERVATIVE MANAGEMENT OF KNEE OSTEOARTHRITIS
Grant number: 1058440 | Funding period: 2014 - 2019
Osteoarthritis (OA), commonly involving the knee joint, is a major public health problem worldwide. This Fellowship aims to reduce the burden of knee OA by research to improve patient outcomes through more effective and accessible conservative non-drug care that takes a biopsychosocial approach and emphasises patient self-management. It will also build research capacity in the field through training and mentoring early career researchers.
