Arthritis At Home Episode 99 – Patient Experiences and Reported Health Outcomes during the First Two Waves of COVID-19
In this episode of Arthritis At Home, we speak to Dr. Susan Bartlett, Professor of Medicine at McGill University and Adjunct Professor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins Medicine, on her American College of Rheumatology annual meeting poster abstract titled “Real World Canadian RA Patient Outcomes Over the First Two Waves of COVID-19 Pandemic.” Dr. Bartlett takes a close look at the experiences of patients living with rheumatoid arthritis and their reported health outcomes.
Dr. Bartlett completed a Masters in Psychology at McGill, a PhD in Clinical Psychology at Syracuse University, and post-doctoral studies at Johns Hopkins. Her clinical and research interests address how factors like emotional distress and health behaviours affect how well people feel and function. She has also studied how exercise and yoga enhance outcomes in people with arthritis. Her research has been funded by the NIH, CIHR, the Arthritis Foundation, and the Arthritis Society among others.
