Feasibility and domain validation of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) flare core domain set: Report of the OMERACT 2014 RA Flare Group plenary
Consensus Development Conferences as Topic
Outcome Assessment (Health Care)
These data contribute initial evidence of feasibility and content validation of the OMERACT RA Flare Core Domain Set. Our research agenda for OMERACT 2016 includes establishing duration/intensity criteria and developing criteria to identify RA flares using existing disease activity measures. Ongoing work will also address discordance between patient and physician ratings, facilitate application of flare criteria to clinical care, elucidate the role of self-management, and finalize recommendations for RA flare measurement.
