Welcome to the Rheumatology Resource Centre
The Rheumatology Resource Centre is an educational resource aimed at practicing rheumatologists and other healthcare professionals who provide care for patients with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases. The remit is the same as the disease and therapy areas covered by our parent journal, Best Practice and Research in Clinical Rheumatology.
We started by focusing on rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and we are now in the process of extending this to other inflammatory rheumatic diseases such as psoriatic arthritis (PsA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR).
We have created commentaries, video interviews with podcasts, which are freely available (you do not have to register, log in or provide other details, although you can sign up for E-alerts if you wish). We also provide link-outs to recently-published articles of relevant to each topic.
The Rheumatology Resource Centre is funded by an unrestricted educational grant. It is edited by Dr Thasia Woodworth, Dr Sarah Mackie and Prof Tony Woolf.
We hope you find it interesting and useful in your daily clinical practice.
