Management of Osteoarthritis in the NZ Public Health System
Abbott, J. Haxby; Wilson, Ross; Chua, Jason
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a leading cause of health losses and costs in NZ. The burden of OA is rising as a result of population ageing, rising obesity, increasing injury rates, and earlier onset of disease. The New Zealand health system, already struggling to meet demand for joint replacement surgeries, will be placed under greater pressure by rising rates of OA.
