Survey Now Open: Eular Invites Patients Across Europe to Participate in Groundbreaking Study on Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Diseases

Zürich, SwitzerlandPeople living with RMDs can now fill out the survey online, sharing their experiences to help build a comprehensive understanding of their disease’s impact. The data collected will be invaluable for researchers, healthcare professionals, and patients themselves, providing insights into the burden of RMDs and identifying areas for improvement in care.

EULAR is committed to inclusivity and accessibility; the survey will soon be available in multiple European languages in addition to English. This ensures that a diverse range of patients can contribute their perspectives, enhancing the richness and applicability of the data.

Participants will answer a baseline survey covering demographic information, RMD diagnosis, and its effects on their quality of life. Follow-up surveys will be conducted bi-annually to track changes over time, supplemented by additional disease-specific questionnaires as needed. All collected information will be de-identified to maintain patient privacy in compliance with data protection regulations.

EULAR encourages all individuals living with RMDs to take part in this important survey and urges healthcare professionals to promote participation among their patients. For more information and to participate in the survey, please visit our website by clicking on the following link
