Update of subcutaneous methotrexate guidelines

These valuable guidelines have been in use for some years now. The Forum have developed a task and finish group lead by Lisa Howie, Rheumatology Practitioner from Wales, to look at these in details. It is hoped that the updated document will be published next April in time for BSR/BHPR.

Telehealth/use of multimedia for patient care

The RCN have published a number of documents on how to best use technology in patient care. This includes the use of telephone advice lines, text messaging and telehealth. These are available via the link here.
