It was great to meet with so many healthcare professionals at the British Society for Rheumatology conference recently where we launched our "Little Book of Hope" booklet giving an overview of who we are, what we do and how we do it. We'll be sending these out in the post soon to everyone we hold a postal address for, so please make sure your address details are up to date with us.
Hospital and GP packs
We now have Hospital Packs available for Rheumatology teams and other hospital departments such as Physiotherapy, Orthopaedics and A&E departments. We've also developed GP packs which can be requested to be sent to your local GP practice.
Find the request form here www.jarproject.org/request
Our new "at-a-glance" schools factsheet summarises many of the tips and ideas we include for schools in our 'My JIA' booklet (the purple-edged pages in My JIA are aimed at schools) and in our bespoke 'School Toolkit' packs for education settings. You can print the new factsheet at bit.ly/JIAschooltips (or get in touch if you need a paper copy sent to you or your school).
We recently launched the "Your Voice" area on our website - think of it like a virtual comment box for all things JIA related. Whether you are a parent/carer, patient, clinician or anyone else who has something to get off your chest about JIA, you can fill in the form to feed back comments, issues, concerns, ideas, and suggestions at www.jarproject.org/voice
