RHEUmatic and musculoskeletal conditions: geographical MApping of Prevalence and outcomeS
Link to organisation:
Rural areas present a significant challenge to delivering timely and equitable healthcare. Currently we don’t understand how Rheumatic and musculoskeletal conditions(RMDs) are impacted by living rurally.
We need to understand how many people there are with RMDs living in rural versus urban settings, their health outcomes and the ways in which they use and access healthcare.
We would like people with RMDs living in rural areas to join our PPI group.
