RAP-eL – e-learning for physiotherapists
RAP-eL is an e-learning program developed to provide practising physiotherapists, physiotherapy students and students of other disciplines with essential disease-specific knowledge and clinical practice strategies to help optimally co-manage people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
The effectiveness of RAP-eL has been demonstrated in a randomised controlled trial among practising physiotherapists and from implementation research among physiotherapy and medical students. RAP-eL is used worldwide as a resource for health professionals to improve their knowledge and skills in RA care.
