Identifying Knowledge Gaps in Chronic Osteoarthritis Pain in Women

January 27, 2020 - January 28, 2020

Chronic pain disproportionately affects women, and substantial research demonstrates that differences exist between women and men in pain perception, management, and treatment. SWHR will convene a diverse group of interdisciplinary researchers and clinicians for a closed-door roundtable meeting on osteoarthritic pain in women and how underlying biological responses to pain in women may lead to functional decline in the context of work, home, social, and personal life. The goal of the panel is to identify unmet needs and knowledge gaps in understanding the relationship between pain and function in women with osteoarthritis, and to explore the best means to use scientific evidence to improve comprehensive, function-based pain management for those with osteoarthritis.
