Abstract

The multifaceted nature of osteoarthritis (OA) pain presents a challenge in understanding and managing the condition. The diverse pain experiences, progression rates, individual responses to treatments, and complex disease mechanisms contribute to heterogeneity in the clinical studies outcomes. The lack of a standardized methodology for assessing and classifying OA pain challenges healthcare practitioners. This complicates the establishment of universally applicable protocols or standardized guidelines for treatment. This article explores the heterogeneity observed in clinical studies evaluating OA pain treatments, highlighting the necessity for refined methodologies, personalized patient categorization, and consistent outcome measures. It discusses the role of the multidimensional nature of OA pain, underlying pain mechanisms, and other contributing factors to the heterogeneity in outcome measures. Addressing these variations is crucial to establishing a more consistent framework for evidence-based treatments and advancing care of the patient with OA pain.

Keynote webinar | Spotlight on medication adherence

Live: Thursday 27th June 2024, 18:00-19:30 (CEST)

WHO estimates that half of all patients worldwide are non-adherent to their prescribed medication. The consequences of poor adherence can be catastrophic, on both the individual and population level.

Join our expert panel to discover why you need to understand the drivers of non-adherence in your patients, and how you can optimize medication adherence in your clinics to drastically improve patient outcomes.
