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.
