Seeking participants for an online survey about improving osteoarthritis care
With funding from the Arthritis Society, Dr. Anna Gagliardi and a team of researchers from University Health Network (UHN) interviewed 27 women with osteoarthritis (OA) and 31 healthcare professionals to identify strategies needed to improve OA care for diverse women, and possibly other disadvantaged groups. We are now seeking women with OA, family physicians, and healthcare researchers to participate in a two-round online survey. We will ask you to complete the Round One online survey (about 20 minutes). A few weeks later, we will send you anonymous results, and ask you to complete the Round Two survey (about 10 minutes).
