Musculoskeletal Core Capabilities Framework

Health Education England (HEE) and NHS England have commissioned the development of a Musculoskeletal (MSK) core capabilities framework. Development of the framework builds upon work previously undertaken by the national MSK Workforce Group and includes a Delphi consensus study undertaken by the University of Leeds. The project management group includes stakeholder organisations such as ARMA, HEE, PHE and NHS England.

The MSK framework will set out the core capabilities for healthcare workers to deliver high quality, consistent and person-centred care for patients presenting to a first point of contact with musculoskeletal conditions. The framework will provide a standard structure and language in a multi-professional framework and enable greater consistency and portability in MSK core capabilities.
