This six-part learning series with Professor Stuart Carmichael focuses on dealing with osteoarthritis cases in general practice.

There are many new developments changing our understanding of osteoarthritis as a disease and the opportunities for managing it. Far from being the incurable end-stage problem, which was viewed as an unavoidable consequence of ageing, it is now regarded as a dynamic multi-tissue disease that can be managed successfully.

The importance of OA as a significant and enduring source of chronic pain in the canine population has stimulated interest and created new challenges aimed at finding solutions to deal with that pain. New understanding of the pathology offers insights and possibilities to not only reduce pain but to also alter the pathological progress of the disease.

This series offers the chance to consider traditional management methods of osteoarthritis alongside new ideas and solutions for the problem. Discussion about implementing a new way to improve arthritis management at the practice level is also included.
