Model Consultation


The content of a model osteoarthritis consultation (MOAC) was developed through a consensus exercise involving clinicians and osteoarthritis experts for MOSAICS. Healthcare professionals were subsequently trained to deliver the content of the MOAC, supported by the e-template and Keele University Osteoarthritis Guidebook.
