Volunteers Needed

The Arthritis Research Centre of Canada is looking to recruit volunteers to give feedback about a tool in development to help people with RA make decisions about treatment. The goal is to establish consumer preference on two methods to present information for a decision aid on Methotrexate (a drug used to treat RA).

You may be eligible to participate if you meet the following criteria:
  • You have been diagnosed with RA within the last 12 months;
  • You have been recommended by your doctor to consider using Methotrexate OR are currently using Methotrexate;
  • You can communicate in English;
  • You are available for a 2-to-3 hour session;
  • You can travel to our testing centre at the Arthritis Research Centre of Canada (895 West 10th Avenue, Vancouver, BC V5Z 1L7).
You will view both a booklet version and a series of animated stories, and then will be interviewed about your opinions. Any information you provide will be completely anonymous.
