By Dr Irwin Lim, Rheumatologist

We decided to create a little booklet on Rheumatology a few months ago.

The target audience were local GPs and allied health professionals. Apart from letting them know about our group of rheumatologists, we thought it was important to actually explain what a rheumatologist can do, as the exposure to rheumatology in undergraduate & postgraduate education is poor.

We even listed some of the conditions we treat to make it clearer.

And, we highlighted 4 conditions that we feel are generally treated poorly: Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Spinal Disorders in general, & Osteoarthritis.

Improved awareness of the symptoms, some knowledge of the relevant investigations & earlier referral to rheumatologists would help.

What do you think of this little booklet?
