A Comparison of the ASHC and CDSMP

The arthritis-specific Arthritis Self Help Course (ASHC) and the more generic Chronic Disease Self Management Program (CDSMP) teach generalizable skills for managing arthritis and other chronic diseases. In some locations it may be more feasible to combine efforts and offer the generic course rather than the arthritis-specific program. However anecdotal evidence has questioned whether people with arthritis obtain as much benefit from the more generic course as they do the art...

Inflammation and Insulin Resistance in Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a form of arthritis that causes pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of function in the joints. Over time, joint deformity, joint destruction, and loss of function can occur. Current treatment aims to improve symptoms, but there is no cure for the disease. Pioglitazone is drug that is effective in treating people with diabetes. This study will determine whether pioglitazone can also be used to effectively treat people with RA.

Evaluation of the Arthritis Basics for Change (ABCs) Self Management Program

OPAM-IA: Using Digital Activity Trackers to Improve Physical Activity in Inflammatory Arthritis

Being physically active can reduce pain and fatigue, improve mobility and enhance quality of life in people with arthritis, but adherence to an active lifestyle is poor, with less than half of people with arthritis being active. The primary goal of this randomized controlled trial is to assess the efficacy of a physical activity coaching model to improve physical activity participation and reduce sedentary time in patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Systemic Lupus Erythemato...

Sleep and Exercise in Rheumatoid Arthritis

Regular physical activity is important for people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Sleep requirements for adults should be on a 'sleep needs spectrum' of between 7 to 9 hours per day. Poor sleep is a common complaint among people with RA, which may have an effect on their activity levels and well-being. There is evidence that physical activity and exercise can improve sleep quality and disturbances in other chronic disease populations therefore, examining how same affects sleep ...

Effect of Periodontal Care on Rhematoid Arthritis in Uganda

this will be an RCT. to determine if non-surgical treatment for periodontitis can improve the disease activity score in 28 joints of rheumatoid arthritis in an African setting. Rheumatoid arthritis patients with periodontal disease will be randomised into an immediate intervention arm and a delayed intervention arm and both groups will be followed for two three monthly periods

Prevention of Arthritis-Related Work Disability

People with rheumatic disorders (arthritis) often have trouble keeping their jobs. This study will look at whether vocational rehabilitation (VR) will improve the ability of employed people with arthritis to keep their jobs. Job retention VR services target key factors that increase the risk of job loss. They aim to modify jobs to reduce barriers caused by functional limitations and disease symptoms, future career planning, and establish a partnership with a VR counselor for...

Patient Education in Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis

This project will evaluate the effectiveness and general usefulness of two arthritis patient education programs. The first, the Arthritis Self-Management Program, is a 6-week, community-based program taught in small groups by peer leaders. The second, the Self-Managed Arthritis Relief Therapy (SMART) Program, is a computer-driven program delivered through the mail. Participants in this project are people with rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis who are taking part in the lar...

Evaluation of the Active Living Every Day Exercise Program for People With Arthritis

The primary goal of this study is to assess the effectiveness and feasibility of the Active Living Every Day Physical Activity Program (ALED) for people with arthritis. This project is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of the ALED program in changing arthritis-related health outcomes and to investigate the feasibility of conducting the ALED program in a public health setting.

Development of an Osteoarthritis (OA) Care Plan to Improve Process and Quality of OA Treatment Decisions

Knee and hip osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common cause of disability in the U.S. and affects more than 60% of adults over 65 years. As the burden of knee and hip OA increases among aging adults, more patients are deciding to have joint replacement surgery. However, no clear guidelines exist for patients to determine if or when to undergo total joint replacement (TJR). The investigators plan to develop a web-based system that will provide individualized patient OA Care...

Pain and Stress Management for People With Rheumatoid Arthritis

Self-management of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) symptoms using written emotional disclosure (ED), coping skills training (CST), or a combination of both may benefit people with RA. The purpose of this study is to determine the benefits of ED, CST, or CST and ED together in adults with RA. This study will be conducted at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan and Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina.

Impact of Literacy Level on Patient Education and Health Among People With Arthritis

People with poor literacy may have worse health and less knowledge about how to manage their disease than patients at high reading levels. Patients with arthritis usually receive information on how to manage their disease that is written at an 11th grade reading level. The purpose of this study is to compare the health outcomes of patients with arthritis given either standard 11th grade level materials or interactive, in-person arthritis education along with materials written a...

Use of Thermal and 3D Imaging to Quantify Arthritis

One of the biggest challenges in caring for patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA) is quantifying the degree of disease activity in any given joint. We have built a prototype device using well-established sensors to rapidly quantify surface swelling and heat in arthritic joints. The goal of our studies is to test the hypothesis that this Imager can improve the clinical assessment of arthritis.

Determining Predictors of Safe Discontinuation of Anti-TNF Treatment in People With Polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis

Polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis (Poly JIA) is a form of juvenile arthritis, which is a chronic disease affecting approximately 250,000 people younger than 16 years of age. Poly JIA can be treated with anti-tumor necrosis factor (anti-TNF), a type of medication that is often effective but also has some toxic side effects and is expensive. Among those with poly JIA who are effectively treated with anti-TNF, some can remain healthy off the medication, but some begin to...

RCT of Advance Care Planning in Primary Care

Sometimes people with health conditions become ill suddenly and can no longer speak for themselves and another person (such as a family member) will make health care decisions for them. This means it is important to think about your wishes and tell others about them. This is called advance care planning. When people have done advance care planning, if they become very sick and cannot speak for themselves they are more likely to get the kind of health care they want and it is ea...
