Joint and muscle pain is a common reason for visiting a primary care physician. However, often patients are sent for several imaging tests and are given only pills for their pain with no rehabilitation to improve their mobility and quality of life. Patients’ values and preferences are rarely considered. We will develop a shared decision making program for health professionals and patients to help them decide about the best choices to diagnose and treat joint and muscle pain. We aim to improve communication and increase patients’ knowledge, satisfaction and confidence about high-quality alternatives to imaging and pills. This will contribute to a better experience and improved quality of care for patients living with joint and muscle pain.
