The internet can be a powerful and empowering research and communication tool for the person with arthritis. Arthritis Consumer Experts provides links to websites that are useful in arthritis education, self-management and advocacy.

While the internet is a useful place to find research-based arthritis information, it is important to note that many sites on the World Wide Web have not been updated in months, or even years. Many contain information largely driven by product advertising and might be biased towards providing material to convince a web site visitor to buy products that have not been scientifically proven to be safe and effective.

Before browsing through a website, go to the "about us" section to learn who owns or operates the website, how it is funded, and whether it is governed by a set of "guiding principles".

Websites that carry the HONcode certification are considered to be the most useful and reliable online medical and health information sources available. The HONcode program is administrated by the Health On the Net Foundation (HON). The HON is a non-profit, non-governmental organization, accredited to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. JointHealth™ subscribes to the HONcode principles.

In accordance with our Guiding Principles, the links provided below are limited to sites which we have had the opportunity to review and consider. Links from ACE operated web sites to those not managed by ACE do not imply endorsement or credibility of the service, information or product offered through the linked sites.

If you would like us to consider adding your site to our list of links, please contact us -
