Attending the rheumatology clinic for the first time can be daunting and confusing for patients, particularly those with a polyarthritis or multisystem disorder. Understanding their condition, the roles of the medical staff they will meet and the aims of treatments available to them may remove some of the anxiety that patients feel. This book has been designed to help healthcare professionals prepare patients for their first and subsequent visits to the rheumatology clinic.
