Knee Osteoarthritis Assessment and Treatment
An Evidence Based Approach
Our understanding of the etiology and management of knee osteoarthritis is quickly evolving. During this one-day theoretical and practical course on knee osteoarthritis assessment and treatment, participants will learn about the complex, multifactorial nature of knee osteoarthritis and develop the necessary skills for effective history taking, assessment and treatment. By the end of this course, students will also be to establish an evidence-based, patient-centered treatment plan for individuals with knee osteoarthritis.
