WP4 Dissemination & user integration

This work package will:

-understand the current perspective of individuals in different pre-RA phases about 1) RA; 2) the meaning and perception of "risk” and "risk assessment”; 3) the utility of predictive tests in the context of RA; 4) their willingness to undergo predictive tests for RA

-develop strategies and tools for communication with and education of individuals in different at risk phases about: 1)the different stages of RA and the prognosis of RA; 2) the role of interacting biomarkers in prediction of the development of RA; 3) how lifestyle and behaviour factors affect the risk of developing RA and how these can/should be modulated

-assess the impact of these communication and education strategies on an individual's willingness to undergo predictive tests and their subsequent behaviour

-disseminate information from this project to relevant stakeholders
