Message from OARSI leadership

Important Message Regarding the World Congress

The OARSI leadership team is aware and is concerned that the recent US Executive Order regarding travel restrictions into the United States may impact many of our members and Congress attendees.

The goal of OARSI is to advance knowledge and treatment of osteoarthritis, a pervasive disorder that affects people irrespective of their race, religion or political persuasion. To achieve this, we need to be able to meet, discuss and collaborate with colleagues from around the world. We endeavor to provide such a forum where all are welcome; in that connection we are particularly disturbed by the US Executive Order and its potential effects on the travel plans

New Course- OA Clinical Trials

This course is designed to provide valuable insight and information to those wishing to participate in multi-center clinical trials with the biopharmaceutical industry as well as those planning to design and conduct investigator-initiated randomized controlled trials, either as a single center or in multi-center setting.  Delegates will come away with a greater understanding and ability to design and conduct successful clinical trials in the patient population with osteoarthritis.
