The study compares patient–physician discordance in global assessment in patients with osteoarthritis (OA) versus patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) seen in routine care. This is a cross-sectional study conducted at an academic rheumatology center at which all patients are asked to complete a Multi-Dimensional Health Assessment Questionnaire (MDHAQ), which includes a patient global assessment (PATGL). Rheumatologists are encouraged to complete a physician questionnaire, which includes a phy...

Background Osteoarthritis (OA) commonly is regarded as less severe than rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, limited data are available for direct comparisons, largely because different measures traditionally are used in RA – primarily a HAQ (Health Assessment Questionnaire) vs OA – a WOMAC (Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index). RAPID3 (Routine Assessment of Patient Index Data) on an MDHAQ (Multi-Dimensional HAQ) is a self-report index that is informative in RA and most...

Background: Disparities in the initiation of disease modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) therapy in ethnic minorities have been described in rheumatoid arthritis (RA)(1). These disparities are of particular concern in view of the emergence of early diagnosis and aggressive treatment as a cornerstone of management. Delays in diagnosis and treatment have been ascribed in part to lack of awareness, insidious onset, and atypical clinical presentation, but patient-dependent factors may be as impor...

Background The experience of pain is characterized by inter-individual and group variability, with ethnicity being one potential contributing factor. In a systematic review, it was shown how African Americans (AA) demonstrated lower pain tolerance in experimental studies 1 . Pain is the most common and troubling symptom in patients with osteoarthritis (OA) -maybe reflecting damage- and in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) -maybe reflecting synovitis- but other pain mechanisms are important...

Background A visual analog scale (VAS) to estimate the patient9s global status (DOCGL) often is the most efficient of all 7 RA core data set measures to distinguish active from control treatments in clinical trials 1 . DOCGL is designed to assess inflammatory activity, but it may be influenced variably in different doctors by irreversible joint damage and/or distress. Therefore, 3 additional 0–10 VAS have been developed to estimate levels of inflammation, damage, and distress that may impact DOC...
