We kindly request your contribution in the survey.

The survey aims to examine factors that help to improve health care for people with  osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis in Europe.We are looking at factors that influence the implementation of several recommendations in your health care setting. These recommendations are part of the Standards of Care and Health Quality Indicators developed within the project over the last two years.

The objectives of this survey are as follows:

-       We want to examine which factors may help improve health care for patients with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis through Europe.

-       Through the survey we hope to identify facilitators that will help to implement the European recommendations for the treatment of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

-       Based on this information we will make recommendations for improving health care for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis in Europe

Health care professionals, health care administrators and patients will be asked to participate in the survey. The survey will take 5-10 minutes to fill in and is completely anonymous. The first results of the survey will be presented at the annual EULAR congress in Berlin June 2012.

It is very important to us to receive responses from all 27 EU countries. Therefore we need your help!
