Osteoarthritis (OA) is a highly prevalent disease which carries a huge economic burden. One in eight Australians suffer from osteoarthritis and two-thirds affected are of working age leading to premature retirement.
The Joint Action site was created by Professor David Hunter. His research is focused on numerous elements of OA including the epidemiology of osteoarthritis, imaging in osteoarthritis, clinical trials, novel therapies in disease management and health services research for chronic disease management.
