Event description
Workshop for people living with inflammatory arthritis organised by Arthritis Ireland and Trinity College Dublin.

About this Event

Arthritis Ireland in partnership with Trinity College Dublin have organised a series of workshops to consult people living with inflammatory arthritis.

We invite those living with the condition to sign up for the workshop which will explore patients understanding of their disease and look at how research that directly involves patients could provide better treatment plans.

If you are living with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis or another related inflammatory arthritis - your contribution will help shape future research into prevention and treatments.

Background

Inflammatory arthritis is a common autoimmune condition that can cause disability for patients in day-to-day tasks. While new medications have advanced the treatments for many patients, it is still unclear which patients will develop severe disease, who will respond to current therapies and who will experience side effects.

To further understand disease progression and response we have designed these workshops to engage with patients and aim to address:

(i) patients understanding of their disease

(ii) the risk factors and potential immune system changes involved, and

(iii) how research that directly involves patients may provide important insight to better treatment strategies for Inflammatory arthritis.
