Abstract

Objective
The overall aims of the study are to (a) establish receipt and provision of self-management support for patients with inflammatory arthritis in the UK; and (b) establish if receipt of selfmanagement support is associated with patient’s knowledge, skills and confidence to selfmanage.

Methods
Questionnaire for patients and healthcare professionals were sent to members and associates of the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS). Patients completed the Patient Activation Measure (PAM), and questions about receipt of self-management support. Healthcare professionals completed the Clinician Support PAM and questions about provision of self-management support.

Results
A total of 886 patients and 117 healthcare professionals completed a questionnaire. Only 15% of patients had attended a structured self-management programme. Over half of patients reported having the skills, confidence and knowledge to self-manage and this was associated with receipt of self-management support embedded in routine care. All healthcare professionals felt that patients should be actively involved in their own care, however, 60% were unable to offer structured self-management support. Healthcare professionals reported engaging in more embedded self-management support than patients reported receiving in routine care.
