BSR have produced a collection of case studies which highlight and share best practice between the rheumatology services that took part in the National Clinical Audit for rheumatoid and early inflammatory arthritis.

Following the publication of the second annual report in July 2016, BSR undertook an analysis to identify providers which had performed well in relation to NICE Quality Standard 33 and, specifically, each of the statements within the standard. These providers were contacted and asked to submit case studies to explain how they had achieved these results and confirmation that their clinical lead was happy to provide peer support to other units.

You can download the collection of case studies from the BSR website.
