Enhancing transmural integrated care to support work participation among knee and hip osteoarthritis
Focus of research

Enhancing transmural integrated care to support work participation among knee and hip osteoarthritis patients:

1. Work-disability trajectories: what end-stage knee and hip OA patients are at risk? 
2. Enhancing stepped care to support work participation in end-stage knee and hip OA patients
3. Weight and work: should we address both to prevent worsening of knee and hip OA?
