SLE Adult Patient Survey – 45 Minutes = $50 Visa Gift Card
This survey focuses on adults diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus. Patients with only lupus affecting their skin (cutaneous lupus/discoid lupus) are ineligible for this survey, because they are studying issues unique to systemic lupus erythematosus.
The new LFA online survey is seeking 500 lupus patients over 18 years old to answer questions about their lupus in a confidential survey. The survey’s goals include understanding the patient experience with lupus, their symptoms, treatments, health care costs and the impact of lupus on patients lives. Each participant that completes the 45 minute survey will receive a $50 Visa gift card.
