Session Overview:
It is recognized that musculoskeletal conditions limit independent function and affect social interactions. This session will examine ways of measuring this impact and look at the ways that the social roles can be maintained effectively.

Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:

  • apply a bio-psychosocial approach to the assessment and management of social participation and social roles in adults with musculoskeletal conditions
  • describe individual and general factors which are important when determining restricted social participation in older adults with joint pain
  • compare and contrast the multi-national approaches to the assessment and rehabilitation of restriction in social participation
