Rheumatoid arthritis roadmap
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a lifelong condition but, with treatment and support, life with RA can be positive, meaningful and healthy. This roadmap will help you understand how to manage RA, including self-management techniques and the use of medicines. It will also help you prepare for follow-up appointments with your healthcare team.
This Rheumatoid arthritis roadmap has been developed with NPS MedicineWise and seven other organisations representing specialists, pharmacists, consumers and research experts, which form the Targeted Therapies Alliance. The Alliance provides stewardship and direction about the safe and wise use of biological disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (bDMARDs) and other specialised medicines.
