About POWER (from their website)
Musculoskeletal conditions cause pain and physical disability which lead to increasing use of health care services. We report on how the health outcomes of musculoskeletal disorders and the quality of care differ by age, gender and socioeconomic status. This information can be used to identify areas where disparities can be reduced and care can be improved.
We report on the spectrum of musculoskeletal conditions as follows:
* General Indicators (morbidity, health and functional status, health behaviours and medication management, access and utilization of services) * Osteoarthritis * Osteoporosis * Rheumatoid Arthritis * Low Back Pain
