Chronic pain affects one in five Australians, including children and adolescents, and one in three people over 65.

 

Our goal is to ensure every Australian can access the best possible treatment without delay, to reduce long-term disability, improve work retention rates, and help people and their families live better lives.

Victoria is set for an overhaul of its osteoarthritis management framework, in line with the new Victorian Model of Care for Osteoarthritis, completed last month.

 

The Victorian MoC for osteoarthritis of the hip and knee recommends an increased emphasis on care in the community setting, through public and private musculoskeletal clinical service centres in metropolitan and regional areas.

 

This is consistent with recommendations from Western Australian Models of Care and Arthritis Australia's Time to Move Strategy.

 

Informed by an expert committee of external advisors and health organisations including Painaustralia, the MoC aligns closely with best-practice principles about pain management and draws from the latest insights from pain science research.
