In this issue of JointHealth™ monthly:

The impact of arthritis: Today’s reality. Tomorrow’s great challenge.

Possibly the biggest health challenge facing Canadian federal and provincial governments as the senior population soars over the next few decades, is the growing rate of arthritis.

A special report published this fall by the Arthritis Alliance of Canada outlines the current burden of arthritis on individuals and society and explains what that could mean for Canada’s and Canadians’ future. This issue of JointHealth™ monthly provides a summary of the findings contained in the report, titled The Impact of Arthritis in Canada: Today and Over the Next 30 Years.

The report does more than just tell us the problems, it offers some solutions too, like a National Arthritis Framework, or model of care. Read this issue of JointHealth™ monthly, if you would like to learn more.
