Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of falls and to investigate the consequences of falls in adults with rheumatoid arthritis. 559 community dwelling adults with RA, aged 18 to 88 years (mean age 62; 69% female) participated in this prospective cohort study. Patients were followed for 1 year after a detailed clinical assessment, using monthly falls calendars and follow-up telephone calls. Follow-up took place in participants' usual place of residence in the Northwest of England. Outcome measures included fall occurrence, reason for fall, type and severity of injuries, fractures, fall location, lie-times, use of health services and functional ability.
