The JointHealth™ Arthritis Medications Report Card

How does your province compare?

During the last year, Arthritis Consumer Experts continuously monitored scientific and medication treatment advances that have the potential to affect the lives of those living with arthritis. The JointHealth™ Arthritis Medications Report Card summarizes and ranks these medication treatment advances and helps Canadians and their rheumatologists identify how their province measures up to other provinces in terms of providing reimbursement access to medications approved for autoimmune forms of arthritis.

The understanding of combination medication therapy allows people with arthritis to live healthier, more productive lives. To help prepare the arthritis consumer with the information they need to talk to their healthcare provider, this issue of JointHealth™monthly will also look at:
  • New arthritis medications on the horizon
  • The coast-to-coast discussion about a national pharmacare program
