Research study participants play a crucial role in arthritis research, and much of the research completed at Arthritis Research Canada is made possible by the generous contribution of time by people living with arthritis. There are many opportunities for those with arthritis to become involved; however, some patients are hesitant because they believe that all research studies are invasive. The truth is that some studies can be as simple as taking a survey, testing an interactive website or having a knee exam. And remember, your privacy and confidentiality are always protected.
The purpose of this study, “KickStart30: A 30-Day Intervention for Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis,” is to explore the efficacy and feasibility of an integrated, prescriptive, and trackable wellness intervention combining five wellness elements including exercise, mindfulness, sleep, social connectedness, and nutrition.
Keep track of your symptoms and help advance research. In 2014, CreakyJoints created a Patient-Powered Research Network called ArthritisPower™ with support from the Global Healthy Living Foundation and Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).
ArthritisPower is an innovative, nationwide research registry of patients with rheumatoid arthritis and spondyloarthritis (e.g., psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis). The goal of the registry is to make patient care and management more effective by understanding and analyzing the patient’s condition on a day-to-day basis.
Our approach to research involvement ensures that everything we do is valuable to our researchers, the charity, and above all, to people with arthritis.
The contRAst Program is looking at an investigational medication to help slow the progression of RA in adult patients. . These research studies are being done to learn whether an investigational medication works and how safe it is for adults with RA
IQVIA created ClinicalResearch.com to increase clinical research awareness, understanding, and participation.
If you are interested in taking part in a clinical trial, you can do an instant search to find clinical trials that are recruiting in your area, which requires no registration. Or, you can provide your email and location to register for updates and be notified when new clinical trials in a condition that you are interested in become available. You can also learn more about advances in medical areas of interest to you in the Communities section.
The Clinical Research Programs at NIAMS conducts patient-based investigation in the areas of rheumatic, skin, muscular and inflammatory diseases, and train the next generation of physician-scientists and clinician-investigators in these areas. As part of the NIH intramural research program, the program is uniquely positioned to perform clinical and translational studies in the NIH Clinical Center, the world’s largest hospital and outpatient facility devoted exclusively to clinical investigation. The NIAMS clinical research program, in partnership with other NIH intramural research programs, currently focuses its research in the areas of autoinflammatory diseases, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, spondylarthropathies, outcomes research, vasculitis, myositis, and selected bone and dermatological diseases.
