Seminars in rheumatology

To evaluate the impact of pedometer use on the physical activity (PA) and functional walking capacity (FWC) of adolescents with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) and lower extremity (LE) involvement. Twenty-seven adolescents, aged 11-19 years with JIA and LE involvement, participated in the three-phase pedometer study that introduced the use of a pedometer and an education seminar at 6 weeks. Measurements were taken at the baseline first visit and at weeks 6, 12, and 20. The primary outcome measure was the 6-minute walk test (6MWT)...

OBJECTIVES: Patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) can contribute to a favorable disease course by their own behaviour and environmental adaptations. However, no standardized consensus recommendations on patient behavior and adaptations exist, neither internationally nor nationally. The aim of this study was to establish a core set of recommendations concerning favorable patient behavior to be given to patients with AS by rheumatologists. METHODS: An extended literature research in the scientific and patient-oriented literature revealed 70 recommendations...

The current issue of Reumatología Clínica is devoted to the method of teaching clinical anatomy as it applies to rheumatology. This method was developed as a response to a perceived need. It is our belief that rheumatologists are at present insufficiently trained in clinical anatomy. As a result, our diagnostic skills may fall short of their potential. Recent rheumatologic literature shows a vertiginous growth of musculoskeletal ultrasonography. In contrast to ultrasound, however, skilled, anatomy-based inspection and palpation can be mastered by all and applied in the care of all patients...

BACKGROUND: Learning in small group tutorials is appreciated by students and effective in the acquisition of clinical problem-solving skills but poses financial and resource challenges. Interactive seminars, which accommodate large groups, might be an alternative. This study examines the educational effectiveness of small group tutorials and interactive seminars and students' preferences for and satisfaction with these formats. METHODS: Students in year three of the Leiden undergraduate medical curriculum, who agreed to participate in a randomized controlled trial (RCT, n = 107), were randomly allocated to small group tutorials (n = 53) or interactive seminars (n = 54)...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the variables underlying clinical decisions made by rheumatologists when treating patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and to determine the effect of an educational seminar on the use of quantitative disease activity measurements in clinical practice in this population of physicians. METHODS: Practicing rheumatologists were surveyed on the variables affecting their clinical management of patients with RA by questionnaire. Physicians were divided into 2 groups: the first comprised attenders (Group A) to an educational seminar in the use of the quantitative disease activity measurements in patient management, while the second group comprised nonattenders (Group NA)...

In a large number of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), chronic inflammatory processes cause joint changes and loss of function even in the early stages of disease. Early, targeted use of disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs [DMARDs and TNF-alpha blockers ("biologicals")] can significantly reduce the risk of aggressive progression and irreversible joint damage. Hence, early identification of disease-specific processes of joint inflammation and erosion - at the onset of disease or later - is of key importance for the patient's prognosis and therapeutic strategy...

The objectives were to develop an outpatient, community-based clinical education experience for second-year rheumatology fellows based on sound education principles, and to pilot the program to test its practicability and assess student perception of its educational efficacy. The outpatient clinical education experience consisted of four steps. In Step 1 second-year rheumatology fellows assessed patients and reviewed their cases with two supervisors. Step 2 entailed each fellow presenting a brief summary of each case to their colleagues and supervisors for discussion and analysis of learning issues...

OBJECTIVES: In rheumatology, five different billion-dollar drugs have emerged in recent years, making this subspecialty the focus of extensive advertising campaigns. Considering this development and the fact that the scientific content of advertisements has been questioned, we initiated a study to determine how evidence-based advertisements are in four leading journals of rheumatology. METHODS: Advertisements were extracted from the journals Arthritis and Rheumatism, Rheumatology, Seminars in Arthritis and Rheumatism and the Journal of Rheumatology, and were evaluated using a standardized score form...

Patient education includes cognitive parts as well as coping aspects and learning new skills. Therefore it is necessary to prepare the interdisciplinary training team for their tasks. The German Society of Rheumatology offers special training courses for these tasks. The training courses are divided into a basic seminar and a seminar for special education programs. The basic seminar will mediate knowledge and increase skills used in patient education. Conceptions, effectiveness and advantages are shown. Information and experiences specially mixed with exercises in the areas of communication, group dynamics and adult education take place...

The article summarizes the state of the art in patient education in rheumatology and describes the goals that have been reached and the problems that have to be solved in the future. Within recent years 6 patient education programs have been developed, 4 additional programs are in progress. Evaluation studies have been conducted for 3 programs showing evidence for the efficacy of patient education in different fields. Furthermore quality standards for patient education in rheumatology have been worked out and train-the-trainer-seminars are held regularly...

Primarily the discussion group focused on obtaining current information about the existing patient education programs for different rheumatic diseases developed by a working group of the German Society of Rheumatology, about the institutions running the patient education courses, the train-the-trainer seminars, the costs and the problems of fund raising from the health insurance companies. As a successful example for running patient education courses in an outpatient setting, the cooperation between the Arthritis Center of Hannover and the League against Rheumatism in Lower Saxony was illustrated...

The medical care of children by pediatric rheumatologists may be ethically very complex. Medical trainees and members of the multidisciplinary health care team must be sensitive to and knowledgeable about ethical issues relevant to the care of their patients, and capable of ethical reasoning. Members of the Bioethics Department and the Division of Rheumatology at the Hospital for Sick Children have cooperatively developed a Bioethics Education Program with a curriculum tailored to meet the needs of the health care team...

In our outpatient rheumatology unit, nearly all patients with rheumatoid arthritis (n = 412, responder rate 89%) were asked for their concepts of patient information and what they thought the aims of a patient education program should be. The patients preferred information about biomedical and practical aspects of their disease more than talking about psychosocial problems. In the same way, from a patient education program they wanted cognitive knowledge and practical help for the daily coping with the disease more than psychological help...

The results of an experimental training program in sexologic interviewing for a multidisciplinary arthritis patient care team are reported. The program included didactic instruction, observation and practice of interviewing skills, a seminar, and a case presentation. Trainees had gained more knowledge than control subjects at one year. Both groups improved their interviewing skills, but trainees showed more improvement than controls on problem-list generation. All participants showed more improvement when interviewing male than female patients...

The objective of the following survey was to attempt to establish to what extent the undergraduates in medical schools in the UK were being exposed to structured teaching of disability and rehabilitation (i.e. seminars, lectures, group discussions). A questionnaire and covering letter were sent to 25 medical schools exploring how the teaching was performed and whether it utilized the active involvement of disabled people and/or their carers. It also attempted to ascertain the degree of interdisciplinary teaching occurring...
