Patients Present at the Canadian Rheumatology Association (CRA) meeting
The CAPA Board of Directors attended this year’s Canadian Rheumatology Association (CRA) meeting in chilly Ottawa and we were proud to have been accepted for two poster presentations. The first poster highlighted the results of the Methotrexate survey and the second poster focused on the CAPA-developed resource on pregnancy and parenting with arthritis.
A Resource for Patients by Patients: Pregnancy & Parenting with Arthritis
As the next step to our survey on pregnancy and parenting with arthritis, we have produced a resource to help people with arthritis as they navigate their way through this important part of their lives. The resource includes advice from people living with arthritis who have first-hand experience and tips to share. Read the resource and get informed about the different aspects of pregnancy and parenting with arthritis!
