Provision of primary care by office-based rheumatologists: results from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Surveys, 1991-1995. (1/494)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the extent to which office-based rheumatologists provide primary care to patients without rheumatic diseases or provide principal care to patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: The National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey was used to determine national probability estimates of the nature and types of conditions treated by office-based rheumatologists in 1991-1995. At each of 1,074 patient visits, the rheumatologists recorded up to 3 diagnoses and 3 patient-reported reasons for the visit, as well as information on the treatments provided at the visit. RESULTS: In only 9.8% of new consultations and 11.9% of return visits was neither a rheumatic disease diagnosis nor a musculoskeletal complaint recorded, indicating that the rheumatologist was likely acting as a primary care provider at a minority of patient visits. Among continuing patients with RA, the patient's primary reason for the visit was something other than a musculoskeletal complaint in only 9.9% of visits, and any nonrheumatic complaint was recorded in 30.4% of visits, indicating that at only some visits was the rheumatologist acting as the principal caregiver. In addition, only 31.1% of visits included the provision of medication for a nonrheumatic condition. CONCLUSION: In 1991-1995, most visits to rheumatologists involved the provision of specialized or consultative care to patients with rheumatic diseases or musculoskeletal complaints, and few visits were made by patients without either indication. Provision of principal care by rheumatologists to patients with RA is not currently widespread.  (+info)

Primary hip and knee replacement surgery: Ontario criteria for case selection and surgical priority. (2/494)

OBJECTIVES: To develop, from simple clinical factors, criteria to identify appropriate patients for referral to a surgeon for consideration for arthroplasty, and to rank them in the queue once surgery is agreed. DESIGN: Delphi process, with a panel including orthopaedic surgeons, rheumatologists, general practitioners, epidemiologists, and physiotherapists, who rated 120 case scenarios for appropriateness and 42 for waiting list priority. Scenarios incorporated combinations of relevant clinical factors. It was assumed that queues should be organised not simply by chronology but by clinical and social impact of delayed surgery. The panel focused on information obtained from clinical histories, to ensure the utility of the guidelines in practice. Relevant high quality research evidence was limited. SETTING: Ontario, Canada. MAIN MEASURES: Appropriateness ratings on a 7-point scale, and urgency rankings on a 4-point scale keyed to specific waiting times. RESULTS: Despite incomplete evidence panellists agreed on ratings in 92.5% of appropriateness and 73.8% of urgency scenarios versus 15% and 18% agreement expected by chance, respectively. Statistically validated algorithms in decision tree form, which should permit rapid estimation of urgency or appropriateness in practice, were compiled by recursive partitioning. Rating patterns and algorithms were also used to make brief written guidelines on how clinical factors affect appropriateness and urgency of surgery. A summary score was provided for each case scenario; scenarios could then be matched to chart audit results, with scoring for quality management. CONCLUSIONS: These algorithms and criteria can be used by managers or practitioners to assess appropriateness of referral for hip or knee replacement and relative rankings of patients in the queue for surgery.  (+info)

The American College of Rheumatology nomenclature and case definitions for neuropsychiatric lupus syndromes. (3/494)

OBJECTIVE: To develop a standardized nomenclature system for the neuropsychiatric syndromes of systemic lupus erythematosus (NPSLE). METHODS: An international, multidisciplinary committee representing rheumatology, neurology, psychiatry, neuropsychology, and hematology developed case definitions, reporting standards, and diagnostic testing recommendations. Before and after the meeting, clinician committee members assigned diagnoses to sets of vignettes randomly generated from a pool of 108 NPSLE patients. To assess whether the nomenclature system improved diagnostic agreement, a consensus index was developed and pre- and postmeeting scores were compared by t-tests. RESULTS: Case definitions including diagnostic criteria, important exclusions, and methods of ascertainment were developed for 19 NPSLE syndromes. Recommendations for standard reporting requirements, minimum laboratory evaluation, and imaging techniques were formulated. A short neuropsychological test battery for the diagnosis of cognitive deficits was proposed. In the postmeeting exercise, a statistically significant improvement in diagnostic agreement was observed. CONCLUSION: The American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Nomenclature for NPSLE provides case definitions for 19 neuropsychiatric syndromes seen in SLE, with reporting standards and recommendations for laboratory and imaging tests. It is intended to facilitate and enhance clinical research, particularly multicenter studies, and reporting. In clinical settings, consultation with other specialists may be required. It should be useful for didactic purposes but should not be used uncritically or as a substitute for a clinical diagnosis. The complete case definitions are available on the ACR World Wide Web site: http://www.rheumatology .org/ar/ar.html.  (+info)

Validity of a vasculitis activity index for systemic necrotizing vasculitis. (4/494)

OBJECTIVE: To establish the validity of an index designed to measure activity in systemic necrotizing vasculitis (SNV). METHODS: The Vasculitis Activity Index (VAI) was designed to incorporate appropriately weighted clinical measurements that reflect disease activity in SNV. We performed a pilot study to guide the modification and subsequent testing of the initial design. The data necessary to calculate the VAI are direct ratings by a clinical observer of the degree of activity in 9 organ systems and 3 indirect measures of vasculitis activity. These data are recorded on 0-4 visual analog scales. Physician's global assessment (PGA) is used as the "gold standard" measurement of disease activity. The VAI was validated using 2 independent data sets: the questionnaire data set, derived from test case histories ("paper cases") sent to 100 practicing rheumatologists, and the clinic data set, obtained from use of the VAI in 204 regular care visits of 74 patients with SNV. RESULTS: The VAI correlated highly with the PGA: Pearson's correlation coefficient R = 0.84 (95% confidence interval [95% CI] 0.80-0.88) for the questionnaire data set, and R = 0.92 (95% CI 0.90-0.94) for the clinic data set. The mean of the interobserver coefficients of variation for the test case histories was lower for the VAI than for the PGA (mean difference 0.45; P = 0.002), indicating that the VAI has less interobserver variation than does the PGA. The change in VAI between clinic visits for individual patients correlated highly with the change in PGA (R = 0.88, 95% CI = 0.83-0.91). The VAI data collection form requires about 1 minute to complete, including computation of the score. CONCLUSION: The VAI is a valid measure of vasculitis activity that correlates highly with the PGA. In addition, the VAI has less interobserver variation than the PGA and has a high level of sensitivity to change over time. Additional testing of the VAI appears warranted.  (+info)

Frequency of sepsis after local corticosteroid injection (an inquiry on 1160000 injections in rheumatological private practice in France). (5/494)

OBJECTIVES: The principal aims of this study were to determine the frequency of sepsis after local corticosteroid injection (SALCSI), to compare the results with those of the literature and to determine the main factors leading to a decrease in the frequency of SALCSI. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted among 69 rheumatologists in private practice. Sixteen items were studied and are reported. RESULTS: The mean number of years of private practice in rheumatology was 20.9. The total number of CS injections (CSI) was 1160000 for an average of 809 CSI per year and per therapist. The mean number of CSI performed by one rheumatologist was 16 800. Fifteen SALCSI had occurred, which corresponds to a frequency of 1/77300 CSI. The rate of SALCSI for the older rheumatologists was lower than that of their younger colleagues. The frequency of use of corticosteroid packaged in a sterile syringe (CSPSS) was approximately 85%. Nine out of the 15 cases of sepsis had occurred after the use of CS not packaged in a sterile syringe and six after the use of CSPSS. Thus, the frequency of SALCSI was 1/162000 after the use of CSPSS and 1/21000 after the use of CS not packaged in a sterile syringe. CONCLUSIONS: The mean frequency of SALCSI in Paris and the surrounding area was 1/77300 during the last 21 yr, a decrease since the 1960s and 1970s. This decreased incidence is in part due to the greater experience of the rheumatologist, but even more to the use of CSPSS.  (+info)

Does waiting matter? A randomized controlled trial of new non-urgent rheumatology out-patient referrals. (6/494)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the effect of waiting times on the health status of patients referred for a non-urgent rheumatology opinion. METHODS: The study was a randomized controlled clinical study evaluating a 'fast track' appointment with a 6-week target waiting time against an 'ordinary' appointment in the main city out-patient clinic of the rheumatology service for the Lothian and Borders region (population approximately 1 million). Health status was measured using the SF12 physical and mental summary component T-scores and pain was measured with a 100 mm visual analogue pain scale. Secondary outcomes were health utility and perceived health both measured with the EuroQol instrument, mental health measured with the Hospital Anxiety and Depression scale, disability with the modified Health Assessment Questionnaire and economic costs measured from a societal perspective. RESULTS: Mean waiting times were 43 days (sigma = +/-16) and 105 days (sigma = +/-51) for 'fast track' and 'ordinary' appointments, respectively. Both groups showed significant improvements in mean [95% confidence interval (CI)] scores for pain: 11 (7, 16)(P < 0.001); physical health status: 4 (2, 5) (P < 0.001); mental health status: 2 (0.1, 4) (P < 0.02); and health utility: 0.11 (0.07, 0.16) (P < 0.001) by the end of the 15-month period of the study, but there was no significant difference between either arm of the study. CONCLUSIONS: Rationing by delay was not detrimental to either mental or physical health and patients in both arms of the study showed significant and similar improvement in health by 15 months. Expenditure of resources on waiting times without regard to clinical outcomes is likely to be wasteful and additional resources should be directed at achieving the greatest clinical benefit. More research into effective methods of controlling demand and better identification of those who would benefit from access to specialist care is needed.  (+info)

Clinical quality management in rheumatoid arthritis: putting theory into practice. Swiss Clinical Quality Management in Rheumatoid Arthritis. (7/494)

Clinical quality management (CQM) in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) aims to reduce inflammatory activity and pain in the short term, and damage, and consequently disability, in the long term. Within CQM as used in Switzerland rheumatologists are provided with a measurement feedback system with which they can regularly follow their patients. Inflammatory activity is measured with the Disease Activity Score (DAS28) and the Rheumatoid Arthritis Disease Activity Index questionnaire (RADAI), damage with an X-ray score and disability with the Stanford Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ). Feedback is used to optimize therapy, which in the short term allows the activity of the inflammatory process to be adjusted or 'titrated'. In the long term, the therapy result for the individual patient is monitored by the course of disability and damage. In this paper we present a series of cases to illustrate the usefulness of the CQM system in the management of individual RA patients. CQM in RA may be helpful when making decisions about adjustment of treatment, and to document and communicate these decisions based on quantitative data.  (+info)

What competence does a rheumatologist need?: an international perspective. (8/494)

OBJECTIVES: To forecast, on the basis of the past and present position of rheumatologists in Europe, the competence needed in the future to secure and promote the specialty within the healthcare network. METHODS: Union Europeenne des Medecins Specialistes/European Board of Rheumatology (UEMS/EBR) questionnaire on (a) training centres in Europe, (b) rheumatologists' skills, (c) UEMS core curriculum. RESULTS: 173 training centres in rheumatology were identified. Reponses to the questionnaire showed both harmony and diversity in the practice of rheumatology. Harmony arises from the need to (a) have an extensive and profound knowledge of, and clinical experience with, all the causes of painful or disabled locomotor apparatus; (b) manage such disorders in the most cost effective way; and (c) promote "shared clinical decision making". The diversity seen both among and within the European countries is due to the different activities of rheumatologists. CONCLUSION: Rheumatological competence must be based on a common core, as described in the UEMS core curriculum, and on deeper and diverse clinical or scientific knowledge covering the entire field of the specialty, to secure its flexibility and resilience in the market place and to promote its scientific development.  (+info)

These delays consequently affect accurate, timely treatment, subsequent intervention and, most importantly, impact the quality of life of the people living with these burdensome conditions. The British Society for Rheumatology (BSR, 2015) published a policy report outlining key challenges and opportunities facing rheumatology services in the United Kingdom. They highlighted the importance of early diagnosis and proposed a 12-week window of opportunity in which to positively affect patient care by referring appropriately to a rheumatologist within this time.. Moreover, a national clinical audit ...

Objective: To ask rheumatologists about the likelihood of performing a formal joint count at each visit of a patient with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in standard clinical care.. Method: Direct query of rheumatologists at an international meeting of about 600 rheumatologists from 17 European countries.. Results: Overall, 14% of rheumatologists reported performing a formal joint count at each visit of each patient, and 44% of rheumatologists reported performing a formal joint count at more than 50% of visits of patients with RA. Therefore, 56% of rheumatologists reported performing a joint count at fewer than 50% of visits, including 45% at fewer than 25% of visits. One in eight rheumatologists (13%) reported never performing a formal joint count.. Conclusion: Although the joint count remains the most specific measure for RA, most visits of most patients with RA to most rheumatologists do not include a formal quantitative joint count.. ...

A quick web search about rheumatology is not fruitful either. Rheumatology is defined as: the medical specialty that manages rheumatic diseases. My rheumatology textbook doesnt even try to define what field is all about.. In addition, were not a popular specialty. I dont know of one famous rheumatologist. Were not usually in the news. Were not the heroes in any movie. In fact, I dont think Ive ever seen a TV character who is a rheumatologist (even though there is at least one paleontologist on TV!). The TV character that most closely approximates what a rheumatologist does is my hero Dr. House (no relation, unfortunately) on the TV show House, MD. He is actually board certified in nephrology and infectious diseases, but he gets consulted on very complicated cases, much like rheumatologists often do. However, hed make a lousy rheumatologist because, according to him, its never lupus!. As I see it, rheumatology is the study of inflammation (swelling, redness, warmth, and pain) ...

The most commonly seen condition in the rheumatology clinic is juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA).
In a publicly funded universal healthcare system, we studied trends in encounters with rheumatologists over the past decade and observed increasing rates of access to rheumatologists within 6 and 12 months after diagnosis by a family physician. However, no such improvements were observed among patients seen within 3 months, a more favourable benchmark. We also explored whether receipt of rheumatology care was associated with patient and family physician characteristics, and measures of rheumatology supply. We found that patients of higher SES were more likely to receive timely rheumatology care, which has also been demonstrated in other Canadian provinces.29 ,30 Further, proximity to and density of rheumatologists were important determinants of timely rheumatology care.. While our results appear encouraging, 41% of patients are still not seen within 3 months of a primary care diagnosis as recommended by current guidelines. Thus, an important proportion of patients are not receiving optimal care. ...
Background/Purpose: American rheumatology practice patterns vary considerably. One challenge is practitioner shortage, thus a patient-self-administered screening tool would fill an unmet need if it identified patients with the highest likelihood of having an inflammatory disease (ID). Objective: To assess the appropriateness of referral patterns and concurrently to evaluate a previously published screening tool, Early Inflammatory Arthritis-3 (EIA-3)1. Methods: The US rheumatology database, JointMan® captures inflammatory/non-inflammatory diagnoses of referred patients at a large Washington State rheumatology practice. All patients at the practice fill in an electronic version of the EIA-3 tool. This published screening questionnaire estimates the likelihood of having an inflammatory disease [JIA, RA-fulfilling ACR criteria, Unspecified inflammatory arthritis, SpA, CTDs, SLE] vs non-inflammatory disease [OA, FM, CPPD]. The evaluating clinician was not aware of the EIA-3 results. The results ...
Rheumatology Practice Management is a niche publication focused on process solutions for rheumatology practices, and is designed to provide the rheumatology care team with the knowledge and skills required to keep abreast of todays fast-changing medical/business environment.
When our patients do not look like us, sound like us, speak the same language, or share a similar life experience, does it affect the way we care for them? While we might like to think it does not, a growing body of evidence suggests that it can. We all make unconscious, split-second decisions about the people we encounter throughout the day. As healthcare professionals, we are not immune to the effects of bias. Indeed, we may be more susceptible because we often operate under tight time constraints, with limited information, and under a high degree of stress and fatigue.. In a typical clinical setting, many patients require our attention, each with their own unique personal and medical story. Combine a diverse patient population with a wide variety of needs with a busy physician who is constrained by time and a wide variety of inadequate resources, and you have a challenging situation. This can be magnified for us as rheumatologists, dealing with patients with complex medical conditions-like ...
Patient-centred care is widely advocated in rheumatology. This involves collaboration among patients, caregivers and health professionals and is particularly important in chronic rheumatic conditions because the disease and treatment can impair patients health and wellbeing. Qualitative research can systematically generate insights about peoples experiences, beliefs and attitudes which patients may not always express in clinical settings. These insights can address complex and challenging areas in rheumatology such as treatment adherence and transition to adult healthcare services. Despite this, qualitative research comprises one per cent of studies published in top-tier rheumatology journals. A better understanding about the impact and role, methods and rigor of qualitative research is needed. This overview highlights recent contributions of qualitative research in rheumatology, summarizes common approaches and methods used, and outlines key principles to guide appraisal of qualitative studies ...
In a QI program and study on rheumatoid arthritis (RA), PRIME® assessed the impact of QI-focused education on community-based rheumatologists performance on national quality measures for RA, along with patient-centered measures aligned with National Quality Strategy priorities. Clinical performance was assessed through baseline and post-education chart audits. As reported in the peer-reviewed journal Rheumatology and Therapy, the study demonstrated a significant impact of QI-focused education in improving the rheumatologists performance on clinical and patient-centered RA quality measures. Applying PRIMEs Framework for Promoting and Evaluating Sustainability and Scalability, we incorporated benchmarking data from this QI study into a scale-up educational program, comprising a national series of RA webinars for interprofessional rheumatology clinicians. The scale-up program outcomes demonstrated education-associated gains in the clinicians ability to deliver evidence-aligned RA care, and to ...

Our data demonstrates that rheumatology publications from the AL countries still lag behind other world regions. Several factors may influence the underrepresentation of rheumatology research in the region. These may include bias from journals toward publishing articles from their country of origin in favor of articles of local interest, WoS may not include journals from middle to low-income countries [12] or articles may be published in local Arab journals that are not indexed on WoS [13, 14]. In addition, the productivity of a country may be skewed based on its number of indexed journals, which are relatively few in the Arab world [15, 16]. Within the region, however, and over the period of 1976 to 2014, we found a consistent and significant growth in the number of publications. This is not unexpected as the world overall is seeing an increase in rheumatology publications, particularly from emerging economies [4, 17]. The Arab world in particular, has developed significantly over the past ...

Referred patients with FM symptoms (n = 193) were randomized to a study group diagnosed by a specialized rheumatology nurse (SRN group, n = 97) or to a control group diagnosed by a rheumatologist (RMT group, n = 96). SRN patients were seen within 3 weeks by a nurse who took structured history and initiated routine laboratory tests. During a 5-minute supervision session, the rheumatologist was informed by the nurse about medical history, performed a brief physical examination, and confirmed or rejected the nurses diagnosis. RMT patients were seen by a rheumatologist after a regular waiting period of 3 months. Outcome measures were initial agreement between the nurse and rheumatologist in the SRN group, final diagnosis after 12-24 months of followup, patient satisfaction, and diagnostic costs. ...
ORTHOPAEDIC/RHEUMATOLOGY:-Derived from the Greek words orthos (correct, straight) and paidion (child), when he published Orthopedie (translated as Orthopedia: or the Art of Correcting and Preventing Deformities in Children[1]) in 1741. Though as the name implies it was initially developed with attention to children, the correction of spinal and bony deformities in all stages of life eventually became the cornerstone of orthopedic practice.

Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis is one of the most prevalent chronic diseases in children, with an annual incidence of 2-20 cases per 100,000 and a prevalence of 16-150 per 100,000. It is associated with several complications that can cause short-term or long-term disability and reduce the quality of life. Among these, growth and pubertal disorders play an important role. Chronic inflammatory conditions are often associated with growth failure ranging from slight decrease in height velocity to severe forms of short stature. The prevalence of short stature in JIA varies from 10.4% in children with polyarticular disease to 41% of patients with the systemic form, while oligoarthritis is mostly associated with localized excessive bone growth of the affected limb, leading to limb dissymmetry. The pathogenesis of growth disorders is multifactorial and includes the role of chronic inflammation, long-term use of corticosteroids, undernutrition, altered body composition, delay of pubertal onset or slow pubertal

Background and objectives High-normal thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) (2.6-4.5 μIU/ml) is associated with metabolic syndrome (MetS) in population studies. We hypothesized that euthyriod polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) with TSH of higher than 2.5 had altered anthropometric, metabolic, and endocrine parameters as well as higher percentage of MetS compared with those with lower TSH levels. Patients and methods The present study included 60 young euthyroid PCOS women without any thyroid risk factors and 60 age-matched and BMI-matched healthy, fertile women. Anthropometric measurements were obtained, biochemical and hormonal assay were evaluated, and the homeostatic model assessment-insulin resistance was calculated. PCOS women were divided into high-normal TSH (group 1) and low-normal TSH (group 2) groups. MetS was defined according to National Cholesterol Education Program/Adult Treatment Panel III. Results Group 1 had significantly higher waist circumference, systolic blood pressure and ...
