Project Members are involved in the development of the online programs that will support people in coping with symptoms of scleroderma. Project members have diverse backgrounds and specialties. Rheumatologists, psychologists, occupational and physical therapists are working together with patient representatives in project focus teams. The online supportive programs that SPIN is developing focus on important problems faced by people living with scleroderma, including for instance fatigue and sleep, emotions and stress, physical limitations, exercises, concerns about body image and appearance, pain, nutrition and diet.
