Abstract:Goal. People with polyarthritis experience symptoms like pain, depression and physical limitations. Studies at cross-sectional level claim that these symptoms are related to social participation. Other studies claim that women, low educated and unmarried people with polyarthritis do earlier stop working than men, high educated and married people with polyarthritis. The present study investigated if the relationship between the changes in symptoms of polyarthritis and the changes of participation at longitudinal level is stronger for women, low educated and unmarried people than for men, high educated and married people. Method. A number of 331 polyarthritis patients participated in a longitudinal questionnaire study (61% women, averaged age: 62 years). Three different separate multiple regression analyses (method enter) for three measurement points in time were conducted, to inspect the longitudinal relation. With a moderation analysis it was analyzed if the relation between polyarthritis symptoms and participation is stronger for women, low educated and unmarried people. Results. At longitudinal level changes of functional limitations are related to changes in participation. Some demographic factors (sex, education and marital status) are determinative for the relation between symptoms and some parts of participation. Conclusion. Depression, pain and physical limitations are indicators for limitations in participation. The relation between symptoms and some parts of participation is different for women, low educated and unmarried people, compared to man, high educated and married people.
