Auf einen Blick


This project is embedded in the work collaboration between the ZHAW and Swiss Learning Health System (SLHS). The purpose of the SLHS is to close the gap between evidence from research and clinical practice in the Swiss health system and to foster the dialogue between stakeholders. This specific project focuses on the conservative non-pharmacological management of patients with knee OA, and to consider identified barriers and facilitator for the implementation of the international clinical guidelines. The aim of the project is to develop an evidence based implementation strategy and guidance for the promotion of conservative knee OA management. The project follows a cycling process according to the SLHS with problem identification, prioritization, evidence synthesis, implementation and evaluation.
