JointHealth™ insight: Getting “Patient Satisfaction” from Arthritis Health Care

JointHealth™ insight – September 2017

Getting “Patient Satisfaction” from Arthritis Health Care

JHI September Arthritis Awareness BannerTo celebrate Arthritis Awareness Month in Canada, in this issue of JointHealth™ insight, we highlight three international surveys that have helped identify gaps in arthritis models of care from the patient perspective. We want to know what you think. Please complete the three mini surveys in this month’s JointHealth™ insight. Your responses will help drive our 2018 information and education programs to support patients and improve the way health care is delivered by the rheumatologists, allied health professionals, health policy decision makers and others who provide care to Canadians with all types of arthritis.

In this issue, you will also:

  • Read about the model of care for rheumatoid arthritis
  • Find a Letter to the Editor template to increase awareness about arthritis in your community
