About


Where you live should not be a barrier to receiving quality arthritis care and information to manage your disease, yet for many Canadians it is. Join rheumatologist Dr. Brent Ohata and Occupational Therapist Jocelyne Murdoch in an Arthritis Talks about accessing care from anywhere.

At this Arthritis Talks, we’ll discuss:

  • How to get referred to appropriate healthcare specialists and resources
  • How to maximize your appointments with your healthcare providers
  • What you can do from home to manage your disease
  • What is being done across the country to increase access to specialists and encourage practice in underserved areas, including virtual and in-person care
