What will this session cover?

Early recognition of inflammatory arthritis is essential to avoid long term damage to joints. There is a “window of opportunity” to optimize treatment and induce complete remission. NICE guidelines for Rheumatoid recommend urgent referral for suspected synovitis. In addition to synovitis, a number of other inflammatory conditions can predictive of an inflammatory arthritis, including tenosynovitis, enthesitis, dactylitis and entrapment neuropathies. These will be comprehensively covered in this webinar.
