The GLA:D™ Canada program is being launched across Canada and is currently available in the following Provinces and Territories:
- Nova Scotia
- New Brunswick
- Prince Edward Island
- British Columbia
The GLAD™ Canada 2017 provides information on the programs that were implemented across the country by the end of 2017, including the participant outcomes for patients that attended the program in 2016 and 2017.
Some highlights include:
GLA:D™ Canada Training and Site Implementation:
- 14 courses for Health Care Providers (HCPs)
- 61 sites implemented the program by December 2017 in 5 provinces.
- 28% reduction in pain intensity
- 35% of participants increased their physical activity
These results show that the GLAD™ Canada program is successfully supporting people with hip and knee OA allowing them to manage their symptoms, improve their function and quality of life, and increase their physical activity.
The GLA:D™ Canada national team are working to make this program available within the final provinces and territories so that patients across the country can reduce their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
GLA:D™was launched in Denmark in 2013. Between 2013 and 2017 there have been close to 30,000 patients who have been treated through the program across the country. Results have shown a reduction in pain of up to 27% and improved function and higher quality of life for patients with hip and knee osteoarthritis.
