The ‘Joint Effort’ Initiative Discussion Group was officially endorsed by OARSI in 2018, and the first official Discussion Group meeting held at OARSI 2019. The Initiative seeks to provide a structure whereby activity related to the implementation of OAMPs may be harmonised, particularly around optimising the quality and delivery of care, health professional training, fostering international research collaborations, and minimising duplication of effort and resources. The Initiative's mission is to investigate the most effective OAMP models to use, develop long-term strategies for effective implementation in different socioeconomic and cultural environments while ensuring the health professional workforce is appropriately skilled to deliver high-quality care and to help identify research priorities to facilitate best-practice care.
