Measuring the Burden of Musculoskeletal Disease Musculoskeletal Conditions and Injuries: Status and Goals United States Bone and Joint Decade
Definitions: F Burden of disease: refers to the combination of the incidence/prevalence, impact (in terms of quality of life and disability), and cost of musculoskeletal conditions. F Bone and Joint Decade: a worldwide coalition to document the burden of musculoskeletal conditions and to improve care through patient empowerment, communication and research.
Background In 1999 and 2000 two conferences, hosted by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, were organized to determine the burden of disease of musculoskeletal conditions in the United States on American society. For many, this was the first activity of the U.S. Bone and Joint Decade, and its most important initial charge. A good knowledge of the prevalence of musculoskeletal conditions provides the foundation to support education, research and advocacy activities of the Decade.
Background F This slide set provides a summary of the findings of the two conferences. After viewing the slide set, refer to the section “Resources” for more comprehensive data, and to obtain materials mentioned in the slide set.
Reasons for the Conference F Mutual interest in burden of disease F Lack of comprehensive data and agreement concerning measures of this burden F Importance relative to research funding (US Congress, National Institutes of Health) F Emergence of Bone and Joint Decade F Improved prevention and treatment
Conference Goals F Identify and discuss burden of disease measures for musculoskeletal conditions F Describe international efforts F Produce a preliminary plan to improve measurement of the burden of musculoskeletal disorders F Identify ways to support the Bone and Joint Monitor Project
Presentations and Discussions F The Bone and Joint Decade - Stuart Weinstein, MD, chairman, US National Action Network F Measuring the Burden of Disease – Dorothy Rice, PhD F Bone and Joint Decade Health Needs Assessment – Prof. Anthony Woolf, member, International Steering Committee for the Bone and Joint Decade
Presentations and Discussions F Previous, Current & Proposed Efforts to Measure the Burden – Joseph A. Buckwalter, MD, chair, Council on Research, American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons F Other Groups’ Previous, Current and Proposed Efforts
Breakout Groups F Measures of Burden of Disease F Data Sources F National Action Plan F Support for Bone & Joint Monitor Project
Previous Efforts in Measuring Burden of Disease F AAOS: collect and analyze data to estimate incidence & impact of musculoskeletal diseases and injuries in the US—1978, 1984, 1992, 1999 F AAOS: analysis of measures of burden of musculoskeletal diseases & injuries “White Paper” 1999 F Dartmouth University: Atlas of Musculoskeletal Care, 2001

Impact of an Aging Population: F Predicted growth in the next 30 years: 1 in 5 Americans will be 65 or older by 2030 [up from 1 in 8 in the year 2000] F About 65 million people in 2030 F Incidence of musculoskeletal conditions will grow proportionally
U.S. Population, Age 65 and Over (as a percent of total population) Age Groups 12.8% 12.6% 13.2% 14.7% 16.5% 18.5% 20.0% Percent of U.S. population
Annual Total Knee Replacements: U.S. Female Population Projections through 2030* based on constant (1996) age and gender distribution based on Census Bureau age and gender projections Effect of population aging Effect of population increase
Annual Total Hip Replacements: U.S. Female Population Projections through 2030* Effect of population aging Effect of population increase based on constant (1996) age and gender distribution based on Census Bureau age and gender projections
