Joint Action on Arthritis

On September 18, 2012 the Arthritis Alliance of Canada (AAC) released Joint Action on Arthritis: A Framework to Improve Arthritis Prevention and Care in Canada. The Framework establishes research priorities and strategies, identifies principles to guide the design and delivery of care, suggests prevention strategies, and proposes a mechanism for the arthritis community to engage with governments and the broader healthcare community.

The Framework's Priorities

The Framework focuses on three distinct strategies:

1.   Advance knowledge and awareness of arthritis

2.   Identify opportunities and prescribe plans to improve prevention and care

3.   Support ongoing collaboration among stakeholders, government, other chronic disease groups
