Bone and Joint Decade

The Bone and Joint Decade (BJD) initiative has recently launched a survey of pain management for global self-help. The goal of BJD is to improve the health-related quality of life for people with musculoskeletal disorders throughout the world.  They are seeking input from a variety of backgrounds and specialties, including physical therapists, about perceptions of self-help techniques to actively manage joint pain. To participate please go to http://www.bjdonline.org/default.aspx?contId=2060.

Following the 2009 Bone and Joint Decade Global Network Conference and Patient Advocacy Seminar, videos of speakers and their presentations are now available to view at http://www.bjdonline.org/default.aspx?contId=2075.
