JEI - Implementation of OAMPs

This theme aims to facilitate the implementation of the best osteoarthritis care internationally and to reduce unwanted variation, by providing a clear path to implement the best osteoarthritis management programs, grounded in implementation science and evidence-based practice.

Who are we?

The implementation group of the JEI meets regularly every couple of months, with membership growing from countries around the world. 

What are our ambitions?

  • ​​To identify what has worked and what hasn’t
  • To highlight similarities and differences across countries and contexts
  • To identify lessons learned from implementation research and practice
  • To identify processes of implementation that determine success or failure

We work in collaboration with the Outcome Work Group and the Joint Effort Initiative more broadly.
