Research agenda for the patient perspective on remission in rheumatoid arthritis.

  • Survey: Increase sample of respondents to rate domains for importance by:

    • — involving countries outside the current scope

    • — including respondents with both early and late disease

    • — including respondents with both erosive and nonerosive disease

  • Seek collaboration with the RA flare and RAID groups

  • Compare RAID domains with remission domains

  • Consider collecting additional identified domains alongside the RAID

  • Investigate overlap between patient global assessment of disease activity and other important PRO, specifically pain and fatigue

  • RA: rheumatoid arthritis; RAID: RA Impact of Disease methodology; PRO: patient-reported outcomes.
