Description:
The overarching principal goal of the change project described in this dissertation is to make the clinic visit for a rheumatology patient with inflammatory arthritis more efficient, more effective and of better quality, when compared to their current experience. Changes to both structure and process of how return patients are assessed will be introduced to facilitate these changes. This entailed pre-recording and ordering relevant clinical tests (blood tests and radiographs), and having patients return to clinic having completed a pro-forma that will include a list of current medications, as well as medications that have previously been tried for their arthritis.
