Supporting and developing clinical rheumatology researchers is an important priority for the ARHP. The purpose of the ARHP Research Subcommittee is to advance research activities of rheumatology health professionals and enhance the development of early career researchers. As part of this mission we have guided the development of the following resources and summaries for clinical researchers.
Here are a few examples of the clinical rheumatology research tools. See the full list below.
Six Minute Walk Test (SMWT)
Arthritis Impact Measurement Scales (AIMS)
Evidence Based Practice (EBP)
Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ)
Fracture Risk Assessment Tool (FRAX)
Multidimensional Assessment of Fatigue (MAF)
Outcomes Instrumentation Introduction (OII)
Physical Therapy Evaluation Tools and Measurements (PTETM)
Timed Up Go (TUG)
Western Ontario McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC)
There are many organizations that have developed systems for defining and sharing information related to evidence-based practice. It is not our intent to repeat that activity, but identify resources available. We do not sanction one over the other, nor do we imply that these are the only sites available from which to gather this information. See ACR Policies and Guidelines >
