Arthritis At Home Episode 181 – Equity considerations that impact access to research and care for patients with arthritis
In this episode of Arthritis at Home, Ellen Wang, ACE’s Programs Coordinator speaks with Megan Thomas, a PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Megan is under the supervision of Dr. Mary De Vera and Dr. Mark Harrison. She completed both her MSc in Community Health Sciences and her Bachelor of Health Sciences honours degree at the University of Calgary. Megan’s work is focused on patient preferences, health equity, and patient-oriented research. More specifically her thesis aims to addresses equity considerations that impact access to research and care for patients with inflammatory arthritis. She plans do this through interviews with heath care providers and patients, as well as using a survey much like the one that ACE conducted!
