A team of UK-based researchers are collecting evidence to better understand the risks that COVID-19 presents for people living with rheumatological diseases so that they can assist with the development of better-informed guidance and information.
We would be very grateful if you could report your own experiences with COVID-19 by completing the Covid-Rheumatology (CORE) report form. This short online survey collects anonymous data and takes only about 5 to 10 minutes to complete. The study has been reviewed and approved by the Yorkshire & The Humber – Leeds West Research Ethics Committee (reference 20/YH/0135).
The information you provide will help clinicians determine the risk the infection poses to patients with rheumatological conditions. It will assist in determining whether medications used to treat these conditions influence COVID-19 infection outcomes, and the influence of the infection on the rheumatological diseases themselves.
This study is part of a large collaborative global effort to provide clarity for the rheumatological community.
We are very grateful for your contribution to this research.
