OPTIMISING RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS
Rheumatoid arthritis is a systemic autoimmune disease that mainly affects the synovium, causing progressive, symmetric, erosive destruction of cartilage and bone.1
In the UK, rheumatoid arthritis affects over 400,000 people aged over 16.2 The course of rheumatoid arthritis varies for each patient and there is no way of accurately predicting the course of disease progression for any individual.3
Whilst there is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis, early diagnosis and treatment allows symptoms to be eased and disease progression to be reduced.4 It is therefore important for healthcare practitioners to have an in-depth knowledge of rheumatoid arthritis and its symptoms, enabling earlier diagnosis and treatment.
ORA is a flexible e-learning platform that has been created to provide an interactive education resource on rheumatoid arthritis for busy healthcare practitioners. The user can create their own learning journey through the material meaning that ORA can be adapted to suit all learning styles and levels of understanding.
