Goals for rheumatoid
arthritis treatment

Build rheumatoid arthritis (RA) treatment goals around what matters most

Don’t settle for symptom relief that’s “good enough”. If your RA treatment isn’t helping you meet your goals, it’s time to discuss another option. Partner with your rheumatologist and challenge your treatment plan expectations.

The right treatment plan begins with the right treatment goals

Come prepared to your next rheumatologist appointment with specific, measurable, and defined goals that reflect your priorities. Whether it’s getting back to a hobby like gardening or getting through the workday with less pain, the Goals Builder will help you write actionable goals that your rheumatologist will use to create a treatment plan that’s right for you.

Assess your RA symptoms to build an effective treatment plan

Creating a treatment plan can be challenging because rheumatoid arthritis is hard to predict since inflammation and symptoms can come and go. Assess your RA symptoms to help determine your level of disease activity.

High disease activity:

High inflammation; symptoms are not under control

Moderate disease activity:

Inflammation and any symptoms occur intermittently and/or with moderate intensity

Low disease activity:

Inflammation and any symptoms occur sometimes and/or with low intensity

Remission:

While RA is present, you experience little to no inflammation or symptoms

Use the RAPID3 calculator to assess your RA symptoms, then share and discuss your score with your rheumatologist to help inform your treatment plan.

Time for a change in your treatment plan?

Deciding to change your treatment is never easy, but neither is living with RA symptoms.

Meet people who were still experiencing RA symptoms and worked with their rheumatologist to find a treatment option that worked for them.
