Bone and Joint Health

Strategic Clinical Network

The Bone and Joint Health Strategic Clinical Network (BJH SCN) is Alberta Health Services’ primary vehicle to promote bone and joint health and is working to transform the way Musculoskeletal (MSK) Care is delivered for Albertans.

Our mission: ‘Keeping Albertans Moving’ by providing the highest quality bone and joint health care and ensuring our community has access to that care at the right time, by the right provider.


A new series of short videos explains more about Bone and Joint Health SCN initiatives such as GLA:D (Good Living with Osteoarthritis – Denmark), the Osteoarthritis Model of Care, and Stem Cell Use in Bone and Joint Injuries. These videos and others can be found under the Related Resources heading on this page.
