Patient Fact Sheets

The ACR has prepared a variety of educational information for patients. Here you will find information on more than 50 different topics related to rheumatic diseases. These materials can be downloaded, copied, and distributed to patients. Fact sheets are available in both English and Spanish versions. 

The ACR's educational materials are intended to complement personal education and advice from the healthcare provider. Informed patients, working together with their rheumatologist and other healthcare providers, are the key players in keeping themselves and their children healthy. 

Thank you for your interest in our patient education materials. In an effort to ensure we are providing the most up-to-date information possible, please note that we are currently in the process of updating all of our materials in preparation of the launch of our new website – currently slated for July 2015. Feel free to send any suggestions or concerns to during this process.

If you have additional questions or comments about the patient resources, please contact us.
