Student Patient Alliance (SPA)
As part of the OPEN ARMS patient and public involvement group we are looking for people to become involved with Student Patient Alliance, a scheme which partners up research students with patients. We hope that these valuable collaborations will help researchers of the future to have a good understanding and appreciation for patient and public involvement in research.
The aim of the project is to build a relationship between and within patients and researchers.
To join the Student Patient Alliance project you need to have a diagnosis of an inflammatory arthritis such as, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Lupus, Gout or pseudogout, Sjogren's syndrome and Lyme’s disease.
