Pregnancy and Parenting with Arthritis

Arthritis affects individuals in many aspects of their life including decisions regarding pregnancy and in carrying out their role as a parent. As a result, CAPA has launched a project to identify patient information needs as it relates to pregnancy and parenting. The survey was launched in September 2015 during Arthritis Awareness month. The survey was intended to be completed by individuals living with arthritis and people in their social support network, such as spouses, rheumatologists and allied health care professionals. Below you will find a summary of the survey results and posters presented at various scientific conferences.
