University survey on rheumatoid arthritis launched
The University of Manchester has launched a survey to find out what community pharmacists think about the management of rheumatoid arthritis and the services they provide.
The anonymous survey is designed to gauge pharmacists’ understanding of the condition and its treatments and how they interact with people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis in their pharmacy.
It asks pharmacists to rate their knowledge of the pharmacological management of rheumatoid arthritis and if they have undergone training or any of their employers have provided training.
It also asks what counselling they give people who have been prescribed methotrexate, hydroxychloroquine, sulfasalazine, NSAIDs and corticosteroids for the first time to treat the condition.
