Evidence-based updates of best clinical practice across the spectrum of musculoskeletal conditions.

Best Practice & Research: Clinical Rheumatology keeps the clinician or trainee informed of the latest developments and current recommended practice in the rapidly advancing fields of musculoskeletal conditions and science.

The series provides a continuous update of current clinical practice. It is a topical serial publication that covers the spectrum of musculoskeletal conditions in a 4-year cycle. Each topic-based issue contains around 200 pages of practical, evidence-based review articles, which integrate the results from the latest original research with current clinical practice and thinking to provide a continuous update.

Each issue follows a problem-orientated approach that focuses on the key questions to be addressed, clearly defining what is known and not known. The review articles seek to address the clinical issues of diagnosistreatment and patient management. Management is described in practical terms so that it can be applied to the individual patient. The serial is aimed at the physician in both practice and training.

The Best Practice & Research Clinical Rheumatology series provides up-to-date and expert information and opinion by drawing on Guest Editors and authors renowned for their expertise. This ongoing review of topics makes the serial ideally suited to supporting everyday clinical practice, for training needs as well as for maintaining knowledge and competency.
