Research Surveys, Questionnaires and Interviews

Questionnaires, surveys and patient interviews are critical to understanding the patient journey with a disease.

Prior to posting opportunities such as those listed below, APFED vets them to ensure that the projects are legitimate and sound, are approved by IRB or compliance departments where applicable to ensure best practices are met and are relevant to our patient community.

Iridium Continuing Education is looking for an EGPA patient to share their perspective on the diagnosis and management from their first symptom through the continuum of care. This patient will share their experience in a patient journey video, aiming to bring awareness of the patient journey to clinicians.
