Rheumatoid arthritis (standing committee A update): addendum consultation

You can now review and comment on this draft addendum.

NICE has updated its guidance on Rheumatoid Arthritis for use in the NHS in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Rheumatoid arthritis: The management of rheumatoid arthritis in adults guideline (CG79) was reviewed in 2015 as part of NICE’s routine surveillance programme to decide whether the guideline requires updating. The surveillance programme identified new evidence on what aspects of occupational therapy can minimise the impact of disease on symptoms, joint damage, function and quality of life. In particular, the update will focus on the clinical and cost-effectiveness of hand exercises in adults with rheumatoid arthritis.

The consultation closes on 29 September 2015 at 5pm
