Why do this research?
The purpose of the study is to establish a comprehensive list of medication side effects that patients with RA might experience. This will help us to measure these side effects, and inform strategies for reducing their impact.
What will be done?
You will be asked to complete a survey about your experiences with RA medication side effects, this is expected to take 10-12 minutes to complete online. Your name will not be requested and it will not appear anywhere other than on the consent form. We will ask you your age, gender and disease duration, and to select which RA medications you are taking (or have taken in the past).
