Preventing rheumatoid arthritis (Pre-RA): Perspectives of people at risk and of rheumatologists on selected interventions

Principal Investigator: Harrison, M; Hudson, M. (PDF)
Co-investigators: Bansback, N; Koehn, C

Project Summary

Increasingly, evidence suggests that treatment of people at risk of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) with anti-rheumatic drugs could prevent the onset of disease, and there are ongoing trials evaluating the effectiveness of different treatments in preventing RA. A preventative treatment would come with considerable uncertain risks and benefits in practice. Using choice experiments, this project aims is to understand the level of evidence, potential risks, benefits and features a preventative treatment strategy would need to offer to be acceptable to people at risk of developing RA and for rheumatologists.
