Dr. Bingham explains how Patient-Centered Outcomes Research calls for scientists and doctors to look at rheumatic diseases in a new way. New research approaches such as questionnaires, interviews and focus groups have made way for tackling the concerns that are most important to our patients.
Vicky Ruffing, a Nurse at the Johns Hopkins Arthritis Center, is in charge of professional and patient education. She enjoys the relationships she builds with her patients and the impact her role has on their lives.
Patient-Centered Outcomes Research gives patients the ability to tell their story.
The clinical research team at the Johns Hopkins Division of Rheumatology is one comprised of dedicated, understanding and talented researchers who truly know the hardships rheumatic patients have to live with on a daily basis. They record data and information which in turn leads to better medical care patients receive in our clinic.
The Arthritis Center mirrors the Johns Hopkins tripartite mission of excellent patient care, research and education. The focus of the center is centered on treating multiple arthritis conditions and diseases.
