Musculoskeletal Care

Musculoskeletal conditions present in a variety of ways across the age spectrum. They can be the result of traumatic injury or progressive long-term conditions, and can significantly impact on quality of life through pain and disability. Patients need intervention and support to minimise the impact of their condition so that they can lead a full and independent a life as possible.

Care integration can impact on quality of care and improve outcomes at every stage of the patient pathway through emergency care, early diagnosis and effective treatment of long-term conditions, and rehabilitation. Entries for this category can be from individuals or teams responsible for planning or delivering integrated care pathways for this group of patients. Entries will be judged against the general criteria. Submissions could include one or more of the following elements:

  • Prevention of trauma in at risk groups
  • Early assessment and diagnosis
  • Timely intervention and treatment to improve and reduce variability of outcomes
  • Effective rehabilitation services to help patients to maintain or regain their mobility and independence
  • Supportive care to help patients and their families to manage pain and disability
