Overview / Abstract:

Rheumatic disorders are prevalent, yet their diagnosis and treatment in affected patients are frequently challenging, contributing to a considerable disease burden. Ensuring timely intervention is critical to slow disease progression and improve patient outcomes. However, various educational gaps impede primary care clinicians from effectively achieving these goals. This 0.75-hour text-based activity features 3 modules comprised of 12 questions encountered in the primary care management of patients with rheumatic disorders. Each question is followed by a detailed answer explanation.
