Are you being treated with steroids for your rheumatic condition? We need your help to test a new questionnaire about steroid impact on quality of life for people living in the UK, USA or Australia.
“We have performed in-depth patient interviews with 60 patients in the UK, USA and Australia to identify the most important aspects of being treated with steroids for a rheumatic condition, and how that impacts on peoples’ quality of life. We have used the interview data to develop a questionnaire.
We are now testing the questionnaire in an anonymous online survey. The final Steroid PRO questionnaire will be used in clinics or clinical trials to measure the impact of steroids on peoples’ quality of life (and hopefully highlight the true benefits of novel treatments that reduce the need for steroids in the future). “
