Dear Research Volunteer,

 

OAFI participates in the project Flare-OA (Development of a tool for the self-assessment of flare in patients with osteoarthritis of lower limbs. The FLARE-OA study).

The objective is to develop a tool for the self-assessment of flare in patients with osteoarthritis of lower limbs.

If you:

  • are 45 years and older,
  • have osteoarthritis of the hip or knee, clinically and radiologically confirmed by a doctor,
  • have had a previous experience of an osteoarthritis flare-up.

 

You can take part in the research by completing the questionnaire. To participate, please click on the following link : https://cicec.limequery.net/62939?lang=es

  • It should take you 15-20 min to complete the survey.
  • Your participation is completely voluntary.
  • If you’re willing to participate in the survey, you will receive, 14 days after your first participation, a mail invitation to fill in the questionnaire again.

 

If you have any questions, please contact the study coordinating team  (FLARE-OA.contact@chru-nancy.fr)
