Good Life with osteoArthritis in Denmark (GLA:D®) is a program for the management of patients with hip and knee osteoarthritis (OA). Adapted for the Canadian population, the GLA:DTM Canada program implements evidence-based strategies to support the prevention, early diagnosis and effective management of hip and knee OA. GLA:D assists local communities in implementing OA strategies across the spectrum of disease severity. An integral part of this program is a national quality and outcomes registry, which includes data concerning participant characteristics and both patient-reported and functional outcomes. This registry helps healthcare providers and healthcare decision makers ensure that individuals with OA receive effective, high-quality care through the GLA:D Canada program.
