There are more than 100 types of arthritis and they can affect people of all ages.
The National Arthritis Awareness Program is designed to provide healthcare professionals the most current, evidence-based arthritis information to help detect, treat and manage arthritis.
To help healthcare professionals screen patients for possible arthritis and understand the latest approaches to treatment and prevention strategies, the Arthritis Research Centre of Canada and Arthritis Consumer Experts have developed an easy-to-use Arthritis Screening Exam. Click on the Screening Exam link and it will take you to an interactive joint exam and questionnaire you can use in your patient consultations. At the end, the Screening Exam will analyze your patient’s responses and provide you valuable results to help you identify and manage your patient’s arthritis.
The Screening Exam is a key component of ArthritisID PRO app for iPhone and iPad – the most comprehensive free arthritis app for healthcare professionals, featuring current “best practice” guidelines for detecting, diagnosing and managing arthritis. ArthritisID PRO also offers Continuing Medical Education (CME) activity accredited by the College of Family Physicians of Canada providing Mainpro® M2 Credits.
