BACKGROUND: Recommended first-line management of lower limb osteoarthritis (OA) includes support for self-management, exercise and weight loss. However, many Australians with OA do not receive these. A National Osteoarthritis Strategy (the Strategy) was developed to outline a national plan to achieve optimal health outcomes for people at risk of, or with, OA. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this article is to identify priorities for action for Australians living with OA. DISCUSSION: The Strategy was developed in consultation with a leadership group, thematic working groups, an implementation advisory committee, multisectoral stakeholders and the public. Two priorities were identified by the 'living well with OA' working group: 1) support primary care practitioners in the delivery of high-value care to Australians with OA, and 2) enhance the uptake of high-value care by Australians with OA. Evidence-informed strategies and implementation plans were developed through consultation to address these priorities.
