10 Method – usual ScotPHN project methodology Project Group and Lead Author Project Sponsor Epidemiological assessment Comparative assessment Corporate assessment (Stakeholder interviews and questionnaires) Stakeholder Group Mini groups ScotPHN is hosted by

11 Objectives Project group agreed focus should be on rheumatoid arthritis and should: Map the policy area and current work being undertaken in this area. Seek to understand the interfaces with other specialities (musculoskeletal (MSK), osteoarthritis etc). Understand stakeholder interest. Annotate and update the PHIS report (December 2002) on rheumatoid arthritis. Identify the inequalities resulting from current service provision and consider rural and remote issues. To make recommendations for future work. ScotPHN is hosted by

12 Areas of work 5 Groups were established with a lead to draft ‘mini’ reports: Initial referral and assessment Chronic disease management Rational approach to RA prescribing Employment and societal impact Remote and rural provision ScotPHN is hosted by

13 Main Findings ScotPHN is hosted by

14 Incidence and Prevalence The epidemiology in this area remains relatively under developed. Generally, rheumatoid arthritis is 2 to 4 times more common in women. About 1 in 4 patients with RA are work disabled at diagnosis, rising to 1 in 3 at 5 years and approaching 1 in 2 at 15 years. Scotland has significantly higher work disabled RA population than England. ScotPHN is hosted by

15 Projected numbers of males with rheumatoid arthritis for 2010, 2015, & 2020, by selected age groups. Aged 16 years and over. (Mid 2009 based.) ScotPHN is hosted by

16 Projected numbers of females with rheumatoid arthritis for 2010, 2015, & 2020, by selected age groups. Aged 16 years and over. (Mid 2009 based.) ScotPHN is hosted by

17 Key findings Lack of robust data on management of RA across Scotland Delay occurs to time of diagnosis and treatment –  shared care not as effective as could be  results in long term disability Lack of awareness in general public compounds early diagnosis and referral which are key to improved outcome for patient Pharmaceutical therapy of rheumatoid arthritis has changed considerably since 2002  Need to understand what is effective use of pharmaceutical therapy ScotPHN is hosted by

18 ScotPHN findings on stakeholder needs assessment It’s hard work… A lot of people to project manage Different styles Reconcile views within report A lot of recommendations BUT… ScotPHN is hosted by

19 ScotPHN findings on stakeholder needs assessment Better understanding of all stakeholder view points Created ownership Enriched stakeholders’ understanding of own and other parts of service ScotPHN is hosted by
