Achieving a low DAS score, being able to perform a certain activity, or just attaining a feeling of general well-being – what exactly does remission mean to you?
Is your idea of remission different to that of your rheumatology consultant/nurse?
You may have heard NRAS talk on this subject a few times and this is because we’ve been working with Roche on a study to discover your views on this very topic. In fact many of you may have completed the survey we carried out.
The study is soon to be published so in order to help promote it, and raise awareness of rheumatoid arthritis as a whole, what we need are some case studies that highlight examples. Ideally what we are looking for are people who have set goals/objectives and achieved them, or have a story to tell about the ‘disconnect’ there is between patient and clinician and so don’t know where they are in terms of DAS/disease progression.
If you think this is something you would be comfortable doing then please let me know. Write down your story in a couple of paragraphs and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Very many thanks!
