2. Project Title: Top concerns of young people living with JIA

The burden of living with a long term health condition is stressful for any individual. However, for young people, living with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is a particular challenge as they grow and mature into adults.

This piece of research is led by Simon Stones and Catherine Wright, consumer representatives with the NIHR/Arthritis Research UK Paediatric Rheumatology clinical studies group.
