logoOur Guiding Values

ARMA is:

Authoritative:

We bring together patient-led, professional and research organisations, and will speak for all groups working to improve services for people with musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Our policies will be based on strong evidence and informed by all ARMA members and their stakeholders.

Inclusive:

We value all of our members as integral parts of the ARMA community and work with a variety of stakeholders through memberships, partnerships and collaborations in order to safeguard and champion the interests of people with musculoskeletal disorders in healthcare.

Accountable:

Our Board is elected by our members, who help set the strategic plan for ARMA and have regular opportunities to discuss and agree all relevant matters at the AGM and through regular CEO and policy group meetings.

Transparent:

We have clear processes for our work, including our decision-making processes, utilising all appropriate means and communication tools. We have an open, transparent framework to guide our funding agreements.

Independent:

We are a charity and umbrella organisation independent of government, industry and other organisations, and have a strong corporate partnership policy.
