Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory autoimmune disease that causes pain, swelling and stiffness in the joints. It can also cause fatigue, and the underlying inflammation may affect other body systems. In people with RA, low empowerment is associated with worse health. Interventions to improve empowerment may include helping people to master their pain, increase physical function, and improve physical activity. Remote technologies to support patient-reported self-assessment may help improve patient empowerment and disease management.
