Support tool for patients - osteoarthritis of the knee.

Support tool for patients - osteoarthritis of the knee.

May 20, 2019

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care has just released a decision support tool for patients on osteoarthritis of the knee.

The tool provides evidence-based information about the main treatment options for OA of the knee, including the risks, benefits and costs. The tool aims to support patients to make more informed decisions and includes questions that patients may wish to discuss with their doctor or health professional.

The decision support tool is available here.

A promotional poster to support the release of the tool is also available.

This decision support tool is based on the treatment options in the Commission’s Osteoarthritis of the Knee Clinical Care Standard. Further information about the Commission’s work on Patient and Consumer Centred Care and Clinical Care Standards can be found at:
