MSK Program (Musculoskeletal Program)
The Musculoskeletal Program (MSK Program) is a program funded by the Province of Ontario’s Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. It is an innovative, upstream, shared-care model of care in which patients receive rapid low back pain or hip/knee assessment, education and evidence-based self-management plans. It is designed to decrease the prevalence of unmanageable chronic low back pain or hip/knee issues, reduce unnecessary diagnostic imaging as well as unnecessary specialist referral.
The London Health Sciences Centre will serve as the physical hub for the region’s MSK Program. The South West LHIN will have a dedicated MSK Assessor in both Family Health Teams and independent practices in the community. All MSK Programs will be connected through a centralized referral and clinic management system.
Reporting to the Manager of Surgery, the Assessor conducts orthopedic assessments on patients across LHIN 2. The MSK Assessor provides a defined program of care to the patient with an emphasis on education, self-management and health promotion strategies; develops a collaborative care plan with the patient and their primary care provider and documents progress against the care plan; and identifies signs and symptoms requiring a change in the plan of care, requisitions diagnostic imaging/testing if required, or referral to a physician specialist.
