Caring for a person with Arthritis
Our thanks to Laura Flynn R.N., B.N., M.B.A. and Sherry Collis, L.P.N., B.B.A. for the development of this program.
Welcome to this self study online program about all the issues regarding arthritis so that you can provide the very best hands-on care to people in your care.
This program includes core content, suggested activities that encourage creative problem solving, and quotes and jokes to entertain and lighten the learning process.
This program was originally a facilitator-led in-service training program with slides. These slides, where appropriate, have been incorporated into this online program to provide easy visual emphasis of key points.
You can complete the program with a colleague or mentor or as self study. A post completion test is included to ensure you fully understand the key points. If you get a question wrong, go back to the relevant section and make sure you understand the answer.
However, before completing the post-test, refer to the CHECK YOUR KNOWLEDGE section in order to make sure you understand the main ideas in the content. Once you are confident that you understand the content and have correctly completed the post-test questions, feel free to print out your certificate of accomplishment.

Did you hear?...
The teacher of the earth science class was lecturing on map reading.
After explaining about latitude, longitude, degrees and minutes, the teacher asked, “Suppose I asked you to meet me for lunch at 23 degrees, 4 minutes north latitude and 45 degrees, 15 minutes east longitude?”
After a confused silence, a voice volunteered, “I guess you’d be eating alone.”
