Clinical Trial Summary

Randomized controlled trial including 100 subjects with rheumatic diseases and biological treatment with a 28 point-Disease Activity Score(DAS28)3.2 or less. The subjects will be randomized to either nurse-led clinic or rheumatologist-led clinic. The hypothesis is that there will be no difference in DAS28 between the two groups after 1 year follow-up.


Clinical Trial Description

Aim To compare nurse-led clinic and rheumatologist-led clinic regarding results of treatment, and health economic costs.

Intervention Rheumatologist-led clinic: The subjects are seeing a rheumatologist after six months and after 12-months of intervention and have the possibility to contact the rheumatology clinic.

Nurse-led clinic: The subjects are seeing a rheumatology nurse after six months and a rheumatologist after 12 months of intervention and have the possibility to contact the rheumatology nurse during the intervention.

Outcome measures:

Main outcome: DAS28 and costs for the clinics respectively.

Secondary outcome: HAQ (Health Assessment Questionnaire), VAS-pain (Visual Analog Scale), VAS-global health, VAS-satisfaction, VAS-security/trust, Tender joints, swollen joints, Quality of life-EQ5D, Effective consumer survey 17, Inflammatory parameters in blood. ;
