You are invited to participate in a survey about your views of foot health education for people with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). Foot health education may be provided by any health care professional including podiatrists/chiropodists, Specialists Nurses, Rheumatologists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Orthotists or it may be that you have found out information for yourself. It can include foot health advice and how to look after your own feet, as well as how RA and your medication might affect your feet in the future. The survey has been developed by Andrea Graham, Lecturer in Podiatry at the University of Salford as part of her PhD project.
The aim of the survey is to investigate if people with RA receive foot health education, who from, what kind of things you want to know about your foot health, when you want to receive foot health education and what kind of things stop you from accessing foot health information/education.
The study requires you to complete an online survey. The link to the survey is highlighted below. The survey is completely anonymous and does not ask for any information that will identify you as an individual. Your participation is entirely voluntary, but your views as a person with RA are valuable to us. Instructions for how to complete the survey are provided once you click on the link. It should take no longer than ten - fifteen minutes to complete. Completion of the survey implies that your consent has been given. The survey will be available to access from the 26th September and will be open for the next 8 weeks.
