Arthritis Australia launches new online resource

To coincide with World Arthritis Day 2015, Arthritis Australia has launched a new online resource, called EMPOWERED, to support those living with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) to better manage their condition.

Although arthritis is typically associated with an older age group, the results of a new consumer survey of people living with arthritis released today, reveals the hidden struggles the condition is causing among younger Australians (aged 18-49), particularly in relation to their workplace participation, financial status and emotional health.

“World Arthritis Day is a great platform to educate Australians that arthritis is not just a condition that affects older people,” said Ainslie Cahill, Chief Executive Officer of Arthritis Australia.
