Non-adherence to drug therapy in patients with rheumatoid arthritis is quite high, and one reason for this may be an absence of understanding as to the purpose of the therapy.

This book is a comprehensive exploration of the drug treatments utilised in the management of rheumatalogical and related conditions and reflects a patient-focused approach which will enable the patient to become an active participant, rather than a passive recipient of care.
