Patient Studies & Surveys

Through studies such as these, arthritis will be better understood and new and improved approaches to management identified and implemented. We hope to:
  • link you with Canadian researchers who are using the Internet, telephone or mail to conduct national arthritis research;
  • provide you with opportunities to participate in research studies in your geographic region, if available
  • provide an opportunity for people with arthritis from across Canada to be able to participate in arthritis research from the comfort of their homes.
Please note: The studies listed on this site have received ethics committee approval. The opportunities posted here do not include clinical trials.
