Emotions, Relationships and Sexuality Survey 2013

Published: 1 Apr 2013

For some time, NRAS had been aware that there was very little information available for people about the impact of RA on emotions and intimate relationships.

At the same time we knew that these were hugely significant issues, for people with RA and for their partners. We wanted to address this gap. In April 2013 we were delighted to publish Emotions, Relationships & Sexuality, a new booklet exploring the impact of rheumatoid arthritis on these intimate aspects of life. The contents and style of this publication were grounded in new research carried out by NRAS. This report sets out the methodology and findings of that research, a survey of over 1,300 people living with RA.
