    RA Trial Measures in Clinical Practice: Is it Time?

Course Director: Clifton O. Bingham III, MD
June 30, 2005 - June 30, 2006

Target Audience
This one hour web-based program has been developed for Rheumatologists, Nurses, and Pharmacists.

Program Overview
Measures of the impact, on rheumatoid arthritis (RA), of various treatments have been under development since the late 1970s. The widest use to date of these so-called outcome measures has been in the clinical trial arena and in the reporting of the long-term impact of disease on patient groups. Many clinicians feel that these same research and classification measures should be adaptable to the office setting but are unsure of their feasibility and utility. This program will attempt to translate the use of outcome measures from the clinical trial arena to the clinic.
