The aim of this survey is to create a tool for the detection of a flare in osteoarthritis of lower limbs that occurred in the past 4 weeks.
The Outcome Measures in Rheumatology (OMERACT) and Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) are inviting you to participate in a Delphi survey of the “FLARE-OA” research project entitled “Development and validation of a tool for the detection of flare in osteoarthritis of the lower limbs”.
The “FLARE-OA” project is led by researchers at the University of Lorraine in France and aims to define flare in osteoarthritis (OA). The research team needs to know what patients think is important to consider to define OA flare. The aim of this survey is to create a tool for the detection of a flare in osteoarthritis of lower limbs that occurred on the past 4 weeks.
There is no right or wrong answer in this Delphi survey. Your responses should be based on your own experience and knowledge on the subject.
If you wish to participate in this survey, please:
- Register through a unique link, providing your first and last name, and email address: http://enquetes.univ-lorraine.fr/index.php/13432?newtest=Y
- Once you register, a link to the questionnaire/survey will be sent to your email account asking you to complete the FLARE-OA FIRST ROUND survey
The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and should not exceed 15 minutes when connected to our site. You have the possibility to answer the survey sequentially (save and reload your ongoing answer). Please provide a response within 3 weeks.
Your participation is very important to the international research team! We thank you in advance for your kind cooperation.
