Feedback and share

To help us make improvements on future animations, we’d love to get your feedback.

Email us at with your thoughts and any suggestions on topics you’d like to see covered.

As the animations are hosted on YouTube, they are easy to share, just use these links - rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis and pass them on to your friends and family.

What’s next?

We’ve already started work on developing more animations, next on our list is one on psoriatic arthritis. Keep an eye out for that over the next few months.
