In this episode of Arthritis at Home, Ellen Wang, Programs Coordinator, Arthritis Consumer Experts (ACE), speaks with Mr. Kohle Merry, PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia, member of Arthritis Patient Advisory Board of Arthritis Research Canada, and a person living with osteoarthritis (OA). Together, they discuss the profound impact of OA on patients, the healthcare system, the economy, and the launch of ACE’s National Survey on Living with Osteoarthritis. ACE encourages people with OA to complete the Survey, which aims to gather perspectives on key issues, including symptoms, interactions with health care providers, lifestyle changes and any other management strategies.
