In a joint initiative by the boards of the German Society for Rheumatology (DGRh) and the Association of Rheumatology Clinics (VRA) the European „standards of care“ for rheumatoid arthritis, recently suggested by the European Musculoskeletal Conditions Surveillance and Information Network (eumusc.net) and supported by the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR), were translated and annotated. The recommendations include aspects of the management of the disease, actual medical care, and access to information – this includes all types of support people with RA need, and, last but not least communication of the necessary knowledge. Furthermore, health care structures such as the availability of medical staff with relevant expertise are also important.
