People aged 18 - 25 living with Arthritis needed to help research project into issues around transition to adulthood

NRAS are pleased to help a MSc psychology student at the University of Westminster who is looking for young people aged 18-25 living with JIA and other forms of arthritis to take part in a research project.

Building on previous research, the aim of this study is to gain a greater insight into how young adults with arthritis manage their condition and its impact on their lives as they manage the transition to adulthood. This insight will be important in helping to identify ways to maximise the physical, social and emotional outcomes of young adults with JIA and other forms of arthritis.

Participants will be required to take part in two one-on-one interviews, the first in January or February 2014 and the second in May or June 2014. Interviews will take place at a mutually convenient time and location. During each interview participants will be asked to talk about their own experiences of arthritis, how they manage their condition and how it affects different aspects of their lives. The study has received ethical approval from the University of Westminster Psychology Ethics Committee.

If you are interested in taking part or would like further information, please contact Victoria Harrison
