Abstract

Studies of patient satisfaction have typically been conducted in general patient populations with little attention to patients suffering from specific illnesses. The purpose of this article is to review literature and raise issues relevant to the satisfaction of patients with chronic arthritis. Individuals suffering from a chronic illness such as arthritis may be different from others who seek medical care in their expectations, what they expect from care, and preferences, what they want from care. These differences may occur because patients with chronic arthritis have greater experience with care seeking and increasing recognition of the potential for poor disease outcomes in spite of adequate care. Literature from marketing research and health care which suggests that both expectations and preferences influence satisfaction with care will be reviewed. Then specific hypotheses about expectations and preferences of patients with chronic arthritis will be proposed. Recommendations for future studies of arthritis patient expectations and preferences will be made.
