Improving the standard of rheumatology care in Europe

The Annual European Congress of Rheumatology commenced today with a comprehensive set of recommendations which aim to clarify treatment options for a range of debilitating rheumatic conditions. Following a rigorous development process involving numerous multidisciplinary experts across Europe, recommendations for the management of hand osteoarthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and fibromyalgia have been proposed for endorsement by EULAR (The European League Against Rheumatism), along with recommendations for conducting clinical trials in SLE and systemic vasculitis.

Professor Tore Kvien, EULAR president, stated: "The EULAR executive place great importance on the need to provide recommendations regarding management strategies for rheumatic diseases in order to encourage the best standard of care across the whole continent. The processes we require for endorsement are based on strict criteria and rely on the best available evidence".

EULAR will consider a range of research initiatives under its endorsement programme, which is led by the EULAR standing committees and governed by a set of published standardised operating procedures1. Topics include management of musculoskeletal disorders, conducting clinical trials, use of specific tools (e.g. bone densitometry, ultrasonography) and even classification or diagnostic criteria. Recommendations already endorsed by EULAR in recent years include management considerations for knee osteoarthritis, hip osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, early arthritis and the management and diagnosis of gout.

Professor Maxime Dougados, MD, Professor of Rheumatology at the Universite Rene Descartes, Paris and Chair of the EULAR Standing Committee on International Clinical Studies Including Therapeutic Trials, said that the latest recommendations were accepted for consideration by EULAR for a variety of reasons, but that all were very relevant issues in daily practice and would be of great value to Europ
