Reason for decision Anticipate the topic will be of importance to patients, carers, professionals, commissioners and the health of the public to ensure clinical benefit is realised, inequalities in use addressed, and help them make the best use of NHS resources
Further information This topic has been identified by the NICE-NHS England Prioritisation Subgroup as a clinical area of high priority. Increasing the availability of digitally enabled self-management programmes for non-inflammatory joint pain including osteoarthritis is aligned to the NHS Long Term Plan, the Major Conditions Strategy, and other national strategic priority areas.
