Arthritis At Home Episode 91 – ACE National Survey on Arthritis Self-Advocacy: A deeper look at the survey results
No one knows arthritis better than those who live with it every day. Self-advocacy is a way of reaching out to others and explaining your arthritis experience and learning how to ask for support and help.
In this episode of Arthritis at Home, Kelly Lendvoy and Cheryl Koehn discuss ACE’s new National Survey on Arthritis Self-Advocacy. ACE’s Survey findings reveal how Canadians understand their disease, where they go to learn about treatment and care, as well as inequities and gaps in arthritis self-advocacy – who is experiencing them and what some of the challenges are.
