Condition

Musculoskeletal Diseases: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Intervention

Feasibility study using two randomly assigned groups of patients.
Randomisation into 2 groups completing 3 RA validated self assessments (self assess joints, rating scale for pain HAQ, global assessment of disease activity) using a touch screen computer and a final nurse led joint assessment blinded to patients' own assessments.
A second group completing the same tests but in a different order followed by the nurse assessment.
Both patients groups will evaluate satisfaction and ease of use of the touch screen.
