PEER Simplified Decision Aid: Osteoarthritis Treatment Options in Primary Care

 

The PEER Simplified Decision Aid: Osteoarthritis Treatment Options in Primary Care and the PEER Umbrella Systematic Review of Systematic Reviews: Managing Osteoarthritis in Primary Care have been developed for clinicians to compare and discuss the evidence surrounding patient responses to non-surgical treatments for those living with osteoarthritis-related pain.

Description and Information

Release Date: March-2020

Title: PEER Simplified Decision Aid: Osteoarthritis Treatment Options in Primary Care

Description: The decision aid was developed for clinicians to help them discuss non-operative treatment options with patients living with osteoarthritis-related pain. It is derived from a systematic review of systematic reviews. Effectiveness data are generated from randomized controlled trials comparing active treatment with inert control, often placebo. The evidence focuses on the proportion of patients attaining meaningful reductions in pain, generally defined as a 30% or more reduction in pain, but specific definitions of clinically meaningful vary widely across studies

Target Population: Adults over 18 years of age with osteoarthritis
