To improve quality, access and appropriateness of care for people with musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions, the MSK Central Intake, Assessment and Management is available for hip and knee arthroplasty as well as low back pain patients

The purpose of this centralized referral system is to provide timely access to care, comprehensive assessments, individualized education and treatment advice, self-management support and reassessments as needed.

Referrals may only be made by a Primary Care Provider (Family Medicine Physician, Sports Medicine Physician or Nurse Practitioner in a family practice).
