Medicine Matters rheumatology is a resource for healthcare professionals caring for people with rheumatic diseases. Our objective is to provide information on the latest advances in rheumatic medicine, to promote good clinical practice, and improve patient care. To that end, we provide:

  • Trusted daily news articles to help healthcare professionals keep up-to-date
  • Interviews with expert clinicians to give context and insight around new research
  • Educational tools and continuing medical education in the form of interactive case studies and webinars to support professional development

We are supported by a distinguished editorial board and consult with a number of clinical advisors who provide us with guidance from an extensive range of professional backgrounds. Our board work closely with our editorial team to highlight gaps in coverage and provide independent review of sponsored material that we host.
