Patient Medication Sheets

The Australian Rheumatology Association (ARA) and Arthritis Australia are pleased to provide the following patient information, for your easy access and downloading.

The development of the Medicine Information Sheets has been a collaborative effort between many members of the ARA in consultation with Arthritis Australia and Communicating for Health, Victoria.  Major credits must go to the past and present members of the ARA Therapeutics Committee for their efforts in delivering these most useful sheets to us.  They have recently been extensively revised using feedback from patients focus groups and new information. We would welcome any feedback on the sheets and where they could be improved for future updates.  Comments can be forwarded to the ARA Secretariat: robynm@racp.edu.au

The Consumer Information Sheets posted below provide 'entry level' information on a range of conditions and management for people with arthritis.  The sheets were developed with the ARA, RACGP, Australian Physiotherapy Association, Australian Practice Nurses Association, Pharmaceutical Society of Australia, Australian General Practice Network and consumers with funding support from the Australian Government.
