Pictured – Previous winners: Sue Kennedy, Anne Hardy and Ruth Machej developed a Progressive Resistance Training Programme (PRTP) so that people with RA can take part in high intensity strength training programmes.

The National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society is pleased to announce the launch of its twelfth Patients in Focus Awards to recognise best practice in the education, treatment and care of people with rheumatoid arthritis.  

Have you developed a new idea to improve the services, education or information for your rheumatoid arthritis patients? Each entry must show a patient focused initiative and include evaluation of outcomes and evidence of patient benefit.  Entries must be able to identify sustainability of the project and best use of available resources and shared care. 

Applications are invited from those working in rheumatology either in a hospital unit or in the community.  Completed entries should be sent to NRAS and must be received by Friday, 7th February 2014. 

The winning entry will also be invited to present their initiative at the British Society for Rheumatology (BSR) conference in Liverpool in April 2014.

Visit the NRAS website to access further guidance and an application form.
