Principal Investigator: Allyson Jones, Professor, Dept Physical Therapy, University of Alberta, PT PhD.

Although persons with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are at risk for breaking their hips, few studies have specifically looked at whether the burden of hip fracture is greater in patients with RA than patients with hip fractures from the general population. Using data from the BC government, we have a unique opportunity to examine hip fracture in a BC population-based group with RA.

However, these self-management approaches do not meet the needs of people living with arthritis in underserved and vulnerable circumstances in British Columbia.
