A three-year follow-up of individuals with rheumatoid arthritis was performed.
The overall aim was to examine the change in functional status and psychological well-being.
Possible determinants of prognosis with regard to future functional disability, pain and wellbeing, were explored by both univariate and multiple regression analyses.
Functional disability, pain and well-being were fairly stable over the 3-year period.
Progress of RA disease was most strongly related to initial function and age and only to a minor extent to the psychological well-being.
