Musculoskeletal Care, 06/22/2012
Buitinga L et al. – The present study provided insight into rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients' future expectations and worst–case future scenarios. The results may be of help in the development of support interventions to put concerns and worst–case future scenarios into a realistic perspective. Furthermore, insight into patients' worst–case future scenarios could be used to improve the validity and responsiveness of the Time Trade–Off, an instrument to measure preference–based health–related quality of life.
