To learn about current OA treatment recommendations, eligible PTs were encouraged to attend the PT workshop arranged in Stavanger on the 26th of October 2016. The workshop included a one-day (9 h) OA educational programme organised by the “Active with osteoArthritis” (ActiveA) management programme [36], which builds on similar Swedish [41] and Danish [42] programmes. The workshop included an update on OA epidemiology, clinical features, and treatment recommendations. Education in delivery of a patient OA education programme, individually tailored semi-standardised exercises, performance testing, and healthy eating and weight reduction strategies was given. The PTs received access to the ready-to-use patient OA education programme (PowerPoint file and manuscript) and access to a database with recommendations for resistance exercises and dose specifications. As part of the ActiveA management programme, the PTs were encouraged to regularly arrange group-based 3 h patient OA education programmes followed by a 6 weeks exercise programme with twice weekly 1-h supervised group sessions (For more details, see Østerås et al. [49]).
