Joint Action on Arthritis

On September 18, 2012 the Arthritis Alliance of Canada (AAC) released Joint Action on Arthritis: A Framework to Improve Arthritis Prevention and Care in Canada. The Framework establishes research priorities and strategies, identifies principles to guide the design and delivery of care, suggests prevention strategies, and proposes a mechanism for the arthritis community to engage with governments and the broader healthcare.

The Impact of Arthritis in Canada

MOC Evaluation Tool

This Master Worksheet was developed by experts who have experience with models of care (MoC).

It can be used for the planning, development or formative evaluation of proposed MoCs.
