The Burdens of Arthritis-Attributable Limitations Lend to Clinical and Training Implications – September 15, 2021
September 15, 2021
Hadiya Green Guerrero, PT, DPT, will review research she and colleagues, Malcolm Drewery, PhD, and Loren Henderson, PhD, conducted analyzing CDS Smart Data (2017) on reported arthritis-attributable activity limitations by race and gender. She suggests there are lessons we can extrapolate from the study on racial disparities of the burden of arthritis between blacks and whites during work- and social-activities and complementary studies that can be applied throughout clinical education and practice to enhance patient outcomes and begin to mitigate health disparities among people with arthritis.
