The goal of the project is to improve the care being provided to patients with chronic osteoarthritis (OA) pain or low back pain (LBP) through practical assessments and the use of an evidence-based treatment approach. To achieve this, the project will aim to increase the knowledge and confidence of physiatrists and PCPs (including Internal Medicine, NP, and PAs) who manage these patients. This will include information on the current and emerging treatment paradigm, as well as overall management of chronic OA pain and LBP. Additionally, the goals of this project directly align with the current practice guidelines for the management of patients with chronic OA pain and LBP.
