Research Overview

The Arthritis Community Research & Evaluation Unit (ACREU) is carrying out a comprehensive research program of applied health services research concerned with the delivery of care to people with chronic disabling disorders using arthritis as a model. ACREU applies a mission-oriented approach to research as opposed to being hypothesis driven. Since 1991 ACREU has been a leader in documenting the nature of the impact of arthritis, and needs and gaps related to existing services. More on research at ACREU...
