A multi-disciplinary approach to managing knee osteoarthritis in the setting of chronic disease

Odoo CMS- Sample image floating

With 50% of Australians currently having a chronic disease, and 25% having two or more, many of these present to health practitioners with the additional challenge of osteoarthritic knees.

With the scientific evidence moving away from low value, high cost interventions, medical practitioners must embrace the multi-disciplinary specialist and allied health team to manage this increasingly common presentation.

The 2017 Australian Commission of Safety and Quality in Health Care Clinical Care guidelines for the management of knee osteoarthritis and the recently released 2018 Victorian Model of Care for Osteoarthritis of the Hip and Knee certainly encourage this approach.

This webinar will explain how this approach can also help to manage many other chronic diseases, with the central themes of management being low cost, high value care including education, reassurance, weight loss, healthy eating and regular exercise. At the centre of this must be the patient who must be involved in all aspects of their own care with recognition and management of the entire biopsychosocial construct of their presentation.

Case studies with tips on maximising the effectiveness of the multidisciplinary team and the clinical evidence for our patients will also be included.

Presenter: Dr Adam Castricum, Sports and Exercise Physician, Olympic Park Sports Medicine Centre, Melbourne

Adam became a Fellow with the Australasian College of Sports Physicians in 2008 after successfully completing 6 years of training in Melbourne and Sydney. He was appointed Chief Medical Officer for Athletics Australia soon after and headed up the medical team for the successful Australian Track and Field team at the 2012 London Olympic Games. In 2014 he joined the excellent medical and conditioning team at Hawthorn Football Club. In 2015, he joined the ACSP Board as Vice President and became President of the newly named Australasian College of Sport and Exercise Physicians (ACSEP) in 2016. Adam also acts as a mentor to indigenous doctors on the Australian Indigenous Doctors Association (AIDA) mentorship program.

His professional areas of interest include athletics, all codes of football, alpine skiing, lower limb injuries and conditions, exercise prescription, adolescent injuries, fatigue in athletes and exercise induced asthma, on which he completed his Masters Research in 2008.

He is passionate about sport and exercise and takes great satisfaction out of helping all members of the community achieve their goals in a safe, and healthy fashion whether they are elite athletes or simply inactive patients wishing to get active and lead a healthier, more rewarding life.
