OsteoArthritis Service Integration System (OASIS)
OsteoArthritis Service Integration System (OASIS) helps people with osteoarthritis self-manage their condition by providing free education sessions. Many of the classes are appropriate for people with other arthritis conditions.
OASIS provides both online and in-person education sessions about managing osteoarthritis, as well as preparing for joint replacement surgery. For more information visit oasis.vch.ca

For health-care providers
Refer your patients to OASIS education by directing them to the OASIS website, where they can self-register for an upcoming session.
If you have specific classes that you would like your patient to attend or would like your patient to have a takeaway with the OASIS contact information, you may choose to print the referral form and provide it to your patient.
If you would like OASIS to follow up with your patient, please fax the referral form to OASIS, and we will initiate contact with your patient.
Referrals for joint replacement surgery consultation should be sent to your local orthopedic central intake office (Vancouver, Richmond or North Vancouver), which is part of the Hip & Knee Arthritis Surgical Assessment Program (ASAP).
