Perceptions of Gout in East Asia Study: Information for Healthcare provider

The Department of Clinical Pharmacology is studying the perceptions of gout amongst East Asian cultures. Our study aims to explore health professionals’ and patients’ perceptions of, and experiences with, gout and its management in East Asian cultures. 

We are actively looking for healthcare providers to participate in the study and also help recruit gout patients who are of an East Asian background.

What is involved?

Healthcare providers taking part in this study will be requested to participate in a 30-minute interview by the most convenient means (face to face, telephone, online). You will be asked questions about your experiences with gout patients, perceived risk factors for developing gout, and the management / treatment of gout.

Aside from the time involved to take part in the interview, we do not expect that there will be any risks or costs associated with taking part in this study.

Who is eligible to participate?

Healthcare professionals who are of an East Asian background.

How do I participate in the study?
