The PORTAL Project is a collaborative research project between rheumatologists and Arthritis New Zealand. It is funded by an educational grant from AbbVie (NZ) Ltd.
The main aim of the project is to develop a means for patients with rheumatoid arthritis to express their opinions about their treatment and care. The information is collected anonymously to enhance freedom of expression of ideas and opinions. The information will be used to improve rheumatology services and the survey results will be made available to participants.
