Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) can lead to severe joint damage and disability, but early diagnosis and therapeutic intervention can improve clinical outcomes and reduce joint damage and disability. This activity will first address the diagnosis of RA from the perspective of a primary care physician (PCP), followed by current treat-to-target recommendations. While many PCPs are uncomfortable initiating disease modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs), other options include glucocorticoids, which can act as a bridge to DMARD therapy. Recent chronotherapeutic developments in the management of RA have the potential to provide PCPs with another tool, especially while awaiting a rheumatology consult or referral.
