The ARMA Annual Lecture 2022 will be focusing on Delivering equitable MSK healthcare: from prevention to highly specialised care.
The prevalence and impact of musculoskeletal conditions are not experienced equally across the population. Musculoskeletal conditions are linked to deprivation, age, are more prevalent in women, and disproportionately affect some minority ethnic groups. The profile of health inequalities is currently high, including the focus in the NHS on the Core 20+ approach. However, MSK gets a low profile in this work. What drives inequalities in MSK health? What can be done to address this?
