Bottom Line: We found that consultation decisions and illness actions were ongoing social processes.The need for and benefits of consulting were weighed against the value of consuming the time of a professional who was considered an expert.Recognizing these factors will improve self-management support and consultation outcomes.

Mentions: We suggest that help seeking for OA features interplay between individual meaning making, knowledge from social relationships, relationships with health services, and wider sociopolitical discourses. Thus, we infer from our findings and existing theory that people’s decision making about joint pain consultations is a dynamic, interwoven process of defining the utility and moral worth of consulting. Accordingly, we offer a theoretical framework for understanding this process (see Figure 1). In summary, help seeking for OA is a process that features a series of ongoing negotiations and assessments. These have to be understood and taken into account when exploring illness actions and help seeking.
