Favourable patient behaviour

In an international cooperation of rheumatologists and a large number of patients with ankylosing spondylitis, a core set of recommendations for the behaviour of patients with ankylosing spondylitis and for environmental adaptations was created.

The study results are published in Feldtkeller E, Lind-Albrecht G, Rudwaleit M: Core set of recommendations for patients with ankylosing spondylitis concerning behaviour and environmental adaptations. Rheumatology International 2013; 33:2343–2349, DOI 10.1007/s00296-013-2727-y.

Leaflets to be given to patients with ankylosing spondylitis by their rheumatologists can be downloaded here. Leaflets in other languages are in preparation.
