Welcome to Assist RA

An individualised, accessible and unique training initiative, designed to empower and boost confidence for all specialist nurses working with people with RA
Assist RA is an educational programme that has been developed using insights from patients and nurses from around the UK to fulfil identified unmet needs in patient management. Our goal is to enhance the impact of specialist nurse care for people with RA, ensuring that management decisions consider their individual goals, putting the patient at the heart of the programme
