... have a medical diagnosis of GCA. Ideally, I would like to talk with 8 people per region in the northwest, northeast, south, midwest. This study pays $150.00 per patient interview. At-home family caregivers are welcome to participate in the interview per the GCA patient's request. The interview would consist of an in-person discussion w/ a team of two researchers for a period of about 1.5 to 2 hours. The only participation requirements are that patients have a medical diagnosis of GCA and that they are willing to talk about their experience from the time of pre-diagnosis, to their first seeking medical care for symptoms, to receiving their diagnosis, through to coping with GCA in the present time. The goal of this research is to gain insight and understanding from the patient perspective around the quality of care available for people who are living with GCA, and how the medical community might make steps toward any improvements necessary to close gaps in service and to help all people living with the disease at any stage. Participation in the study will be anonymous, but results will be published in medical journals for the medical community to learn from. Please contact me if you are interested in learning more about participation. Please feel free to share my contact information with anyone you know who may be interested in participating. Thank you. -Michelle Powers Phone: 612-767-4335
