Call for Research Participants – Rheumatoid Arthritis and Self Care


The OPERAS Project  

Do you have rheumatoid arthritis? Want to learn more about self-care for rheumatoid arthritis? We invite you to test a program for monitoring arthritis symptoms and physical activity. You will receive a Fitbit and coaching from a physiotherapist.



You may be eligible to participate if you:

  • Have no joint surgery or injury to any joints in the past 6 months
  • Have access to a computer or mobile device and the internet

What’s involved?

  • A one-time, in-person education session
  • Use of a Fitbit wrist band and a secure website to monitor symptoms and physical activity
  • Telephone calls with a physiotherapist to review your activity goals for 2 months
