NACDD is Developing a Public Health Framework for Collaborative Arthritis Management and Wellbeing

NACDD is excited to share our progress in developing an evidence-informed public health framework for collaborative arthritis management and wellbeing developed in collaboration with CDC and other partners. Together, we are working to empower healthcare providers in conducting function, pain, and physical activity assessments, offering brief advice on the benefits of physical activity, and facilitating referrals to Arthritis-Appropriate, Evidence-Based interventions.

What’s Next:

  • In 2024, we’re gearing up to pilot this framework with the Iowa Community HUB (CHPcommunity) and their health system partner, Primary Health Care in Des Moines.
