My Joint Pain – online tool for managing arthritis

Developed by Arthritis Australia and Bupa Health Foundation, this online initiative has been endorsed by scientific experts and provides tools to assist individuals to manage and track their joint pain.

The My Joint Pain website and online tools are based on the combined knowledge of a committee of medical and scientific experts in key areas of surgical, scientific, allied health, medical, and consumer advocacy.

It offers three main support functions.  Firstly, the user will answer questions about their situation. Then they receive a summary of their risk of hip or knee osteoarthritis, and management options. In addition, they receive regular updates and ongoing support to keep them on track with managing their joint pain.
