Skou, S
University of Southern Denmark, (Odense, Denmark)

The presentation will initially focus on the burden of osteoarthritis and then on the evidence for exercise as treatment of knee and hip osteoarthritis, including the evidence on specific types, durations and number of sessions of exercise therapy. Furthermore, it will introduce the gap between evidence and practice and present a successful attempt bridging this gap in osteoarthritis care.
