Who can participate?

There are two studies included in the Live Yes! INSIGHTS program – one aimed at people living with arthritis that are 18 years old and over, and another aimed at parents of children, aged 5-17, that live with juvenile arthritis. Periodically, we follow up with Insights participants to explore emerging trends in our data with deeper dive surveys.  

What information will I be giving?

The questionnaire is designed to capture responses directly from you about a symptom or some other important aspect of how arthritis affects your daily function and mobility.

Will filling it out take long?

Answering the questions takes most people about 10 - 15 minutes; some finish more quickly, and some take more time.

Will my information be private?

Your information will be stored in a secure database maintained by the Arthritis Foundation’s vendor, Qualtrics. It is protected at the same level as banking data. The Arthritis Foundation will never share or allow access to data that is tied to your name or identifying information. Data will only be shared in big batches, called “aggregate” data, with no names, addresses, emails or other personal information connected.

Do I take the survey only once?

You can take the survey as often as you like. You will receive email reminders to take it again so you can capture your arthritis experience at different points in time.

What will happen to the data you gather?

The aggregated results will show a composite picture of life with arthritis, the needs of people who are living with the disease and what their priorities are. The Arthritis Foundation will use the data and share it with our research and innovation partners to conduct research and increase our knowledge about arthritis.

Can I share the survey with my community?

Share the following message and graphic on social media and in emails with other patients in your network. When you do, you act as an “influencer,” helping us grow our program and build robust data that can make a meaningful impact on our programs, resources and legislative asks. Make sure to tag the Arthritis Foundation in your post!

Miss out on Family Activities

I measure my pain by the things that I can no longer do. When my son was first born, my arthritis flared so badly, I was a five on the pain scale every day. That pain meant that I could not hold my newborn son.
