Rheumatology is constantly evolving and Practice and Quality is here to help you keep up-to-date, drive innovation and deliver outstanding patient care.

We're passionate about excellence in rheumatology care. Our initiatives include clinical guidelines, audits, peer review and our quality review scheme, all of which underpin national delivery of rheumatic and musculoskeletal disease care.

Our patient registers data and research function increases knowledge about new and existing treatments, providing data on patient safety and drug efficacy, while the integration of clinical care, data and research lets us publish numerous examples of best practice and advances in the science and practice of rheumatology in our journals.

Working with relevant organisations to achieve joint goals across the wider healthcare landscape is key for us. More information on these quality improvement initiatives can be found below.
