HOPE-e (Hand Osteoarthritis: investigating Pain Effects in a randomised placebo-controlled feasibility study of estrogen-containing therapy) Study are inviting women aged 40-65, who are at least 1 year after menopause, and are experiencing hand pain due to osteoarthritis (OA), to take part in this study. The purpose of this study is to test whether taking a tablet of an estrogen-containing therapy once daily for 6 months improves hand pain in women with hand OA, when compared with taking a placebo tablet (inactive medication). This study aims to find out whether it is acceptable to women with painful hand OA to take this type of treatment, and also what the best way of collecting some of the information is, to help us plan a full size trial. The study may also give us some idea of whether this treatment might work or not. If you are interested in taking part in this study or would like more information, please find on the poster: HOPE Poster – V1 0

NWL Health App
NW London CCGs have worked with the Organisation for the Review of Care and
Health Applications (ORCHA) to provide a Health Apps Library website for the
population of North West London. The service launched on 16 November 2020, and
aims to make it quicker and easier for patients, residents and health care
professionals to access safe, accredited health and wellbeing apps, which can make
a real difference to people’s lives.
Health Apps are a fantastic opportunity to provide people in their homes and
communities with important health information and tools, supporting people to
manage health conditions such as asthma or depression and live healthier and
happier lives through exercise and healthy living. There are thousands of different
health apps available, and with the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, there is even
greater demand for them. The library will be particularly useful for patients from high
risk populations during these difficult times. NWL_Leaflet.
