About this Module

The aim of this online module is to explore the diagnosis, patient education, medications and nursing management of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in early disease using the ‘treat-to-target’ approach. This module will also highlight clinical issues that can cause barriers to adequate disease control such as gaining patients’ trust, managing expectations and family planning.


Module Steps

To earn CME credit, follow these steps:

  • Study the educational content.
  • Complete the 5 MCQs that follow the case study. After each question, you will be able to see whether you answered correctly and will then read evidence-based information that supports the most appropriate answer choice. These questions are part of the educational content and are designed to challenge you. You will not be penalised for answering the questions incorrectly.
  • Complete the 10 True or False questions in the Post-Module Assessment. These questions are designed to demonstrate that the module has improved your knowledge base on this topic.
  • On attaining a score of 70% or more on the Post-Module Assessment, the assigned CPD credits will be logged to your personal CPD activity log. You may view or print a verification certificate when required or print off an email stating the name of the module, the author details and the CPD hours. You will not be able to alter the certificate or log. The credit that you receive is based on your user profile.
  • By providing information on how the module has enhanced your knowledge and/or practice, you may qualify for additional CPD credits during a CPD review.
  • NurseCPD encourages you to complete the Activity Evaluation to provide feedback to guide us in the future development of this site.

Each NurseCPD module is designed to be completed within the time designated on the Module Introduction page. This is an estimate of the maximum time required to complete the specific module and is determined by the format and content of the module. Users should claim only those credits that reflect the time actually spent on the activity.

To successfully earn credit, participants must complete the activity online, and receive a minimum score of 70% on the post-module assessment.
