Placing Arthritis Research in Patients’ Hands

To mark this Arthritis Awareness Month, Ben Nowell and Kelly Clayton share their thoughts with PCORI about the Arthritis Partnership with Comparative Effectiveness Researchers (nicknamed ArthritisPower, or AR-PoWER). The ArthritisPower partnership is one of the Patient-Powered Research Networks that make up PCORnet. Read this PCORI Guest Blog to learn more about a patient-led, patient-centered research registry for arthritis, as well as bone and inflammatory skin conditions. Joining the registry gives patients access to a free mobile and desktop application to measure and track their symptoms and share their experiences with researchers and healthcare providers.
