Dr Josep Vergés, the president of the OAFI, explained that the agreement will have two main lines which will be jointly developed: “A line of training for patients, and on the other hand, it will be very important to work to implement a care route for patients with osteoarthritis, which will also have the collaboration of other medical, pharmacy, nursing and patients’ socieities”.

Meanwhile, the president of the SECA, Dr. Manel Santiñà, highlighted the importance of signing the agreement with OAFI: “Thanks to this agreement we are initiating a line of collaboration with organisations such as OAFI that work directly with patients, in this case, patients with osteoarthritis,” he said.
