Patient Understanding of their disease, diagnosis, adherence and impact of research.

Congratulations to Dr. Mary Canavan and Dr. Viviana Marzaioli,  of the Molecular Rheumatology research group, who presented  their patient- focused research poster at the American College of Rheumatology virtual Convergence 2020.  This poster detailed the findings from their study into patients’ understanding of their disease and the role their understanding plays in research studies. This study was a collaborative survey with Arthritis Ireland and the Health Research Board Ireland. 

Inflammatory Arthritis & You

A huge thank you to everyone who attended our “Inflammatory Arthritis & You” workshops on the 29th September and 6th October!  These were online patient -focused workshops held for those living with inflammatory arthritis, in which both patients and researchers gave an insight into different aspects of the disease:  from living with arthritis and breaking down what inflammatory arthritis is to the studies that are currently underway in Trinity College Dublin aiming to understand the mechanisms involved in inflammatory arthritis onset.
