Katie's Story

Katie Druce, Patient and Public Engagement Lead at the Centre for Epidemiology Versus Arthritis, discusses two of her virtual research projects powered by the uMotif platform:

QUASAR (QUAlity of life, Sleep And Rheumatoid arthritis) - the largest and longest remote study investigating sleep and quality of life for adults with rheumatoid arthritis. Katie describes the level of engagement as "phenomenal" with 91% of participants, that wore a sleep monitor for 30 days, being classified as engaged or highly engaged.

GIRAF (Gaining Insight into RheumAtic Fatigue) - an innovative 100% virtual study that involved participants taking their own blood spot sampling remotely.
