125 | P a g e 41. KELLY 2017 : Powerful social influences - 5. Swayed by others‘ experiences I am influenced by other people’s experience of DMARDs. RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS 42. KELLY 2017 : Privilege and right of access to biologics - 1. Expensive medications must be better It is a privilege to get biologic DMARDs as they are “horribly expensive”. I am really careful I don’t waste any when doing my injections. RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS 43. KELLY 2017 : Privilege and right of access to biologics - 2. Right to receive a biologic I feel a bit guilty that I have been given biologic DMARDs and others can’t have them. Everyone has the right to biologic DMARDs and it must make people angry if they don’t meet the clinical requirements. We all pay national insurance. It must be cheaper in the long-term as it reduces surgery and time in hospital. RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS 44. KELLY 2017 : Privilege and right of access to biologics - 3. Fearing dispossession I am not going to tell anyone about the side effects of biologic DMARDs in case they are taken away. They are valued possessions and I worried that they will be taken from me.
