Osteoarthritis of the knee: A decision support tool for patients considering treatment options

Keen pain

This decision support tool was developed by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care and is based on the treatment options included in the Osteoarthritis of the Knee Clinical Care Standard.

The aim of this tool is to help you discuss the main treatment options available, and to support you to make decisions about your care. You can use this tool when you are first starting to think about your treatment options, or if you feel like you need to review or modify your treatment.

Read about the different treatment options and think about the questions that you may like to ask. Talk with your doctor, physiotherapist, or other members of your healthcare team about which option, or combination of options, is best for you.
