Arthritis Patient Charter

People who live with arthritis have both rights and responsibilities associated with the treatment they receive and the choices they make about living with arthritis. The Canadian Arthritis Patient Alliance (CAPA) worked with over 700 stakeholders across Canada in 2014 to create this Arthritis Patient Charter that aims to remind people of those rights and responsibilities. CAPA believes that this Charter will help people realize that they can also ask questions of their healthcare providers so they understand more about their arthritis, their treatment, and the important role they play in their own treatment. You can download and print the Charter LINK here  or contact CAPA for both poster and postcard versions to be sent to you (contact@arthritispatient.ca).

AHPA and ARHP are collaborators!
