A Randomized Trial of Physician Education and Feedback from Practice Audits in Seronegative Arthritis to Close the Care Gap

Principal Investigator: Pope, J.
Co-investigator: Thorne, C.

Project Summary

The purpose of this study was to determine if education and chart audits with feedback could change the behaviour of practicing rheumatologists for the systematic measurements and possibly treatment changes in psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and spondyloarthritis (SpA). There were some more measurements in PsA but SpA measurements did not increase, possibly due to the lack of face validity of changes over time for several of the physical examination measurements performed in SpA.
