The project examined the lived experience of people with arthritis and the disability impact of arthritis on their quality of life. It aimed to identify the potential effects of the National Disability Insurance Scheme. The project collected information about quality of life, support needs, experience of good support and gaps in support for people with arthritis. Methods included a review of national and international literature; round tables, interviews and surveys from people with arthritis, their families and the organisations that provide support to them.
