Every third visit to a GP as well as one third of the disease burden in sick leave practice comes from musculoskeletal disorders (MSKD:s) which cause a high degree of functional impairment, work disability and decreased quality of life for people of all ages. We work on structured and continuous follow-up, evaluation and bench marking making it possible to achieve new ways for collaboration with research groups and decision makers within Sweden, Europe and other parts of the world. We use registers from the Swedish National Insurance Agency (Försäkringkassan), the local health authorities of Region Skåne and national registers on occupation, income, education. We also include data from National Disease Registers (Nationella kvalitetsregister) and plan to include data from the municipality level. The program has a focus on the consequences for the individual and the society in patients with inflammatory MSKD.
