A standardised catalogue of patient scenarios to improve the ranking of RA disease activity?

To better standardise the evaluation of disease activity of rheumatoid arthritis patients, especially in moderate disease, consensus scores of their medical doctor (MD) global ratings (EGA) are needed. Dr Janet Pope (Western University of Canada) suggests the development of a catalogue of patient scenarios to decrease the wide variability of ranking among rheumatologists. She explains how that could work in this conversation with Dr Paul Studenic (Medical University Vienna, Austria).
