PRECISION Inflammation Elimination

Today, Arthritis Consumer Experts (ACE) unveils the details of an exciting new study—called PRECISION—that re-examines models of care for the three most common types of autoimmune arthritis.

Developed by an expert team of researchers in statistics, epidemiology, and rheumatology, PRECISION looks at arthritis and its associated complications in a way that sets it apart from previous research on the disease.

In this issue of JointHealth™ monthly, you will find out who is behind the PRECISION research and what makes the study unique. As well, you will learn:
  • What was discovered from the study.
  • How the knowledge gained from the research will benefit people living with rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and psoriatic arthritis.
  • What pilot interventions were derived from the research.
  • The results of a survey of arthritis consumer viewpoints that ACE conducted in collaboration with the PRECISION project.
  • What medication adherence is and why it is important, in an interview with Dr. Mary De Vera.
