|Rheumatoid arthritis responsibility study|
The National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society is developing a new Responsibility Deal for people with an interest in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) – patients, carers, healthcare professionals, policy-makers. It is hoped the Responsibility Deal will encourage people to think differently about RA and will emphasise that everyone has a responsibility to help foster improved partnerships between all those involved in the care process. Managing chronic conditions such as RA is about teamwork with everyone working together towards a better outcome for everyone.
NRAS is currently conducting a survey of those involved in the care process to establish their views on the responsibilities they have and the expectations they place on each other. To take part in the survey, please visit the NRAS website at www.nras.org.uk/campaign. The results of the study, incorporated into the new Responsibility Deal, will be published to coincide with World Arthritis Day on the 12th October.
