This proof-of-concept randomized trial evaluates the effectiveness of using an on-line decision aid (ANSWER-2) in the decision making to start or switch biologic therapy in Canadian patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
Closed for Recruitment
The investigators plan to conduct a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the effectiveness and the cost effectiveness of an on-line eLearning program (entitled Employment and Arthritis: Making it Work) designed to help people with inflammatory arthritis stay employed. The program also includes assessments with 1) an occupational therapist, and 2) a vocational rehabilitation counsellor at the end of the program to help participants identify and obtain necessary changes at work. People from three provinces will be recruited from collaborators' patient and program recipient lists.
