Osteoarthritis Nurse Clinics
This educational resource has been developed for primary health care nurses to help them to include osteoarthritis in their chronic disease management clinics alongside their GP colleagues.

It was developed with the input of primary care nurses by the Grampians Medicare Local, and with support from an expert advisory group, the Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association and Arthritis Australia.
