New Health Topic Alert! Osteoarthritis


NCFH has created a new health topic alert on osteoarthritis, with a focus on the  agricultural worker population. The research material includes the most recent American College of Rheumatology recommendations for the use of drug and non-drug therapies in osteoarthritis of the hand, hip and knee. The patient education section includes a number of resources in English and Spanish, with several geared specifically to the agricultural worker population. The organizations listed provide further resources from key organizations, such as the Arthritis Foundation and the AgrAbility Project.

Previous topic alerts can be found on the Health Topic Alerts webpage.
