Invitation to Participate in a Survey

 

ADULT PATIENTS:
Our research team is seeking participants with inflammatory arthritis conditions (such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, and Gout) who have been a patient in the emergency department recently to answer an online survey about their visit there.  In this survey, we will ask you about your decision to go to the emergency department, what you did for your symptoms before going there, and what happened while you were there. The survey is expected to take 15 minutes to complete. If you are interested in participating, please click on the following link to take you to the consent form and the survey.
