Knee Osteoarthritis in Older Adults: Management in the Community

Synopsis


Osteoarthritis (OA) is the 5th highest cause of disability-adjusted life years in the older age group. With the prevalence of Knee Osteoarthritis expected to rise with the ageing population and growing obesity levels, prevention and management is key to contain economic and social costs.

 

This workshop aims to provide a multi-dimensional and holistic management of Knee Osteoarthritis in older adults living in the community. Musculoskeletal assessments and interventions for  Knee Osteoarthritis will be shared, drawing from the latest updates in the management of patients with Knee Osteoarthritis overseas. As the effective management of the patient with Knee Osteoarthritis often also requires consideration of many other lifestyle and psychosocial factors, subject experts will also delve on how to manage such patients more holistically with diet, weight management and finally surgical interventions if conservative treatment fails.


Practice makes perfect. Group discussions, practical sessions, and interactive case studies will be used  to apply the learnt knowledge and skills in order to promote active learning amongst participants
