Meet the people behind ArthritisPower
In 2014, CreakyJoints created a Patient-Powered Research Network called ArthritisPower® in partnership with the University of Alabama at Birmingham. ArthritisPower is part of the interconnected National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network (PCORnet), a collaboration of patient groups, registries and health systems.
Patient Governor Group for ArthritisPower, the Patient-Powered Research Network
This innovative, nationwide research network of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, spondyloarthritis (e.g., psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis), and other conditions is led by a Patient Governor Group with input from the wider CreakyJoints community, putting patients at the center of all research conducted with ArthritisPower.
“Patient Governors are the critical connection between research scientists and the CreakyJoints community of people living with arthritis. They tell us what issues are important to study from their perspective. They speak from their own experience to flag potential challenges so we can adjust when preparing to do research.”
– Ben Nowell, PhD, Director, Patient-Centered Research at CreakyJoints

Yes. The information you provide will only be used for tracking trends among patients. The only time your information would be shared with identifying data is if we are linking the data with a health institution and we want to ensure the correct person’s data is being used. Besides this, your info will not be connected with you in any way.
No! In the event that we do ask for it, it is completely optional. It is not necessary to provide your SSN to participate in ArthritisPower.
Unfortunately, no. The purpose of ArthritisPower is to track your health for both your benefit and the benefit of research.
