Welcome to our EULAR–EMEUNET Journal Club within the EULAR  School of Rheumatology

The 6th edition of our Twitter Journal Club is scheduled for 6th of February 2019! More information will be announced shortly.


Our fifth Journal Club discussed the paper by Nikiphorou (@ElenaNikiUK) et al, published in Rheumatology: "The association of obesity with disease activity, functional ability and quality of life in early rheumatoid arthritis: data from the Early Rheumatoid Arthritis Study/Early Rheumatoid Arthritis Network UK prospective cohorts"

This last Journal Club took place the 26th of September 2018. It was a very interesting discussion with three authors of the papers joining us: first author Dr. Nikiphorou, co-author Dr. Norton and senior author Dr. Kiely. In total, Twitte Journal Club reached 27 532 people , 30 users were active with more than 200 posts tweeted!

This discussion underlined the importance of screening for overweight and obesity in RA, the importance of a dialogue about exercise and diet between physicians and patients and the potential beneficial role of a nutritional expert in the treatment of RA.
