Scaling up cost-effective interventions is an important priority in PHE's Musculoskeletal (MSK) Health 5-year strategy. The MSK Return on Investment (RoI) tool identified and recommended a set of non-pharmacological, non-surgical interventions delivered in primary healthcare and community settings for people with common, disabling musculoskeletal conditions with clinical trial evidence supporting their effectiveness and cost-effectiveness. But do these interventions also help reduce inequalities in musculoskeletal health? Might they unwittingly widen them?

There are wide inequalities in the prevalence of MSK conditions and their associated risk factors. People living in the most deprived deciles report significantly higher rates of back pain and joint pain, alongside significantly higher risk factors for MSK pain such as inactivity, obesity and smoking. Certain BAME groups report higher rates of MSK conditions. In addition, women are more likely to report an MSK condition than men.

This webinar will present the findings from the review on the differential effectiveness on inequalities based on the ROI interventions in PHE’s publication and what we know about the current level of provision and uptake.

The topics to be covered in the webinar will be:

-- Keele University’s Systematic Review on the PHE MSK RoI tool and effect on inequalities

-- Surveillance data and MSK Inequalities data on PHE Fingertips

-- The qualitative/insight work of Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) partners on BAME communities and MSK health. Race Equality Foundation will elaborate on their effort in establishing a community of practice by identifying and supporting a group of people from across a range of backgrounds with a shared commitment to addressing health inequalities experienced by BAME people with MSK conditions

-- Evidence review of MSK health and populations with a Learning Disability- what do we know and what needs to change
