Comparison of expectations of physicians and patients with rheumatoid arthritis for rheumatology clinic visits: a pilot, multicenter, international study
International Journal of Rheumatic Diseases, 08/17/2012
Wen H et al. – The authors found some agreement and some discordance of clinical expectations between rheumatoid arthritis patients and physicians. There appear to be some different expectations in different countries. Findings from this pilot survey may help physicians consider patients' expectations in planning rheumatology clinic visits and may lead to further hypothesis–driven studies.
