Event Overview
Welcome message:

Rheumatology has been through a time of enormous change in the last 15-20 years.  Our understanding of the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of early inflammatory arthritis has substantially changed outcomes for many patients.  The advent of biological therapies has brought great benefit to patients with most difficult to control disease.  However, there are still many challenges in the management of rheumatoid arthritis – it is clear that other factors than disease alone affect outcomes; there is significant physical and psychological comorbidity with long term conditions; comorbidities in RA can present challenges in choosing the right biologic drug for an individual patient; and as the numbers of biologic agents increase this may present an increasing financial burden to an NHS under pressure.

Alongside the great strides that have been made in the management of some rheumatic diseases, others still prove more challenging to manage in the clinic and in primary care – including systemic sclerosis and fibromyalgia. 

This symposium programme has been designed to address some of these more difficult and challenging areas, with an emphasis on prevention of disability.  It is hoped that it will be of interest to rheumatologists, but also to primary care colleagues, rheumatology nurses and allied health professionals.
