Study Description

KickStart30: A 30-Day Intervention for Patients With Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

This study explores the efficacy and feasibility of a self-management wellness intervention that is integrated, prescriptive, and trackable in a population of patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) taking a biologic. This 30-day wellness intervention (called "KickStart30") combines five wellness elements: exercise, mindfulness, sleep, social connectedness, and nutrition. Additionally, the program requires that participants implement 5 wellness interventions daily for the 30-day study, document daily online adherence, complete daily HERO (happiness, enthusiasm, resilience, and optimism) exercises to improve mental wellness, and complete online program forms before and after the 30-day intervention. Participants are assessed pre- and post-intervention to determine whether the intervention promotes wellness behavior changes.
