Clinical practitioners not adhering to evidence-based guidelines for osteoarthritis
Date:1/4/2011

New research found clinicians who care for patients with osteoarthritis (OA) are likely not following standard care guidelines that are based on current medical evidence.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), arthritis and other rheumatic conditions cost the U.S. $128 billion in 2003a 24% increase since 1997. Much of the cost burden in arthritis care can be attributed to OA which accounts for a large volume of surgical procedures including total joint replacements.

Dr. David Hunter from the University of Sydney in Australia and New England Baptist Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts and colleagues reviewed how standard clinical practice diverges from evidence-based recommendations in the management of OA. "We present a potential roadmap for optimizing the quality of OA healthcare for those developing and enforcing policy decisions, and for clinicians on the frontlines of OA management to enact practice change," commented Dr. Hunter.

Current clinical practice does not reflect recommendations based upon medical evidence. The authors report that therapeutic interventions are primarily aimed at reducing pain and improving joint function by using therapies t
