Quality of Life in Chronic Arthritis
A Study on Quality of Life in Patients With Chronic Arthritis

Chronic joint complaints are prevalent in clinical practice. If chronic arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is not adequately controlled, it can not only affect patient's working ability but also produce indirect cost in patient's family. Quality of life will also be affected. Health-related quality of life issues are assuming increasing importance in chronic rheumatic diseases. However, studies on quality of life in rheumatic patients are limited. Factors related to quality of life are not clear. Application of quality of life measurement for improving clinical care of RA and AS patients is still difficult. The objective of this study was to evaluation the validity of EQ-5D life quality measurement in chronic arthritis patients in Taiwan. Factors associated with life quality will be addressed. This will also provide useful information for public health policy making.
