Statement of Need

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease affecting over 1.3 million Americans and approximately 1% of the global population.1 Many treatment options are available to treat RA, and these agents may be used as monotherapy, as sequential treatment strategies, or as combination treatment. To successfully treat patients with RA, clinicians must be aware of the various treatment strategies outlined in the ACR guidelines and clinical evidence that supports these treat-to-target approaches. The management of RA is complex and requires the involvement of the entire treatment team—that includes the patient—in order to maximize the benefits of existing treatment approaches, incorporate new treatments when appropriate, and ensure the health care needs of all patients with RA are met.

This live, interactive webcast features a panel discussion moderated by Leonard Calabrese, DO with audio input from patients with RA, video interviews from RA team care members at the Cleveland Clinic, and a live Q&A.
