Abstract

Susan Oliver discusses the findings of a recent King's Fund report on rheumatoid arthritis and looks at how nurses working in the community can use them to improve care

Summary

The King's Fund report on rheumatoid arthritis (RA) found wide variations in the care available to patients with RA, a lack of understanding among health professionals of disease progression and poor information provision. An explanation of the disease, the care nurses working in community settings can provide and what should be involved in the commissioning process are covered in this article.
