Arthritis: Products and life hacks to tackle stigma

Presenters: Ela Neagu and Lizzie Raby

A wide range of products are available to support people with arthritis in their daily occupations – but which ones are the “best”? The team compiled a peer led database collecting relevant products (both everyday items and specialist items) and tips, with a particular focus on daily mobility difficulties. This webinar will explore the development and the products included in this database. Examples will be provided to participants to be able to share with clients in their practice.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will:
1. Identify everyday products that have been identified as useful by people with arthritis.
2. Effectively communicate information about everyday products using terminology that people with arthritis understand.
3. Better understand people with arthritis’s perception of stigmatizing aids.
