Population-based interdisciplinary approaches to osteoarthritis: from evidence to practice. A joint-organized session by Chiropractic Health Care and Aging and Public Health

Chronic diseases involve many factors therefore are challenging to prevent and manage. As well, entities may approach chronic diseases from differing paradigms, thus we may lack a concerted effort that might be more effective. Osteoarthritis is a chronic disease that, according to the CHC, impacts 50 million adults and of these, 21 million have arthritis-attributable activity limitation. Costs related to arthritis and other rheumatic conditions were $128 billion in 2003. Because osteoarthritis is a common and disabling condition, the Aging and Public Health section and the Chiropractic Health Care section have developed this joint session to take a closer look at osteoarthritis. The purpose of this session will be to address osteoarthritis using multidisciplinary viewpoints. Speakers have been invited to discuss their area of expertise including: epidemiology, community programs, healthcare organizations, and clinical practice. After all speakers have presented, a moderator guided panel discussion will address: how to be more effective in translating research into policy and practice, identify gaps in the research literature, what these representative disciplines can do together to address osteoarthritis. This session will demonstrate multidisciplinary collaboration to address osteoarthritis by working together, developing action steps, and providing suggestions for future collaboration.

Preventing injuries from the ground up: A multi-disciplinary approach to fall prevention for older adults, translating research into policy and practice. A joint-organized session by Chiropractic Health Care and Injury Control and Emergency Health Services

Injuries are a major health concern. Falls causing death have increased over the past 20 years and are a major cause of death and disability for older adults in the US. More than a third of older adults fall each year and it is estimated that by year 2020, annual direct and indirect costs related to fall injuries will be $47 billion. Due to the importance of this issue, the Injury Control and Emergency Health Services section and the Chiropractic Health Care section have worked together to develop this joint session on fall prevention in older adults using a multidisciplinary approach. Speakers have been invited to address fall prevention from their various disciplines and viewpoints, these include: CDC, Research Journal Editor, Epidemiologist, Preventive and Behavioral Medicine, and Clinical Practitioner. Using a social-ecological framework we aim to improve communication and help break down the barriers between the silos that often exist in addressing public health issues. After each of the speakers present their area of expertise, a moderator will guide this multidisciplinary panel to discuss issues of fall prevention in older adults related to: gaps in the scientific literature, what collaborative actions can be done, and how we can better work together. This session will use multidisciplinary collaboration to address fall prevention in older adults by developing action steps and providing suggestions for future collaboration.
