Please provide your feedback by completing this survey (coming soon).

Closing date: Friday 7 December 2018

The draft Action Plan has been developed with the input of a multidisciplinary Steering Committee comprising representatives of major stakeholder groups with an interest in arthritis prevention, management and care. Members include consumers, health professionals, researchers, policy makers and service providers. Major contributions were also provided by the project team developing the National Osteoarthritis Strategy 2018 (soon to be released), which has informed the osteoarthritis-related recommendations of the Plan, and participants in the Arthritis Roundtable Workshop held in December 2017.

In addition, we thank the National Arthritis Consumer Reference Group and respondents to our recent consumer survey for sharing their experience of living with arthritis and their ideas for improving arthritis care and support.
