  1. Anti-rheumatic drug-prescribing behaviour of Australasian Rheumatologists 1984-1994.

    Article - En anglais

    The prescribing behaviour of Australian and New Zealand rheumatologists was studied in 1994 using a questionnaire. and the results compared with a similar questionnaire administered in 1984.

    Perceived differences in efficacy and toxicity for disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and cytotoxics were reported.

    Over the decade, methotrexate and sulphasalazine have become the most commonly used anti-rheumatic agents, and methotrexate is clearly seen as the most effective drug.

    Wide variations in monitoring practices for DMARDs were reported, highlighting the need for cost-effectiveness studies on monitoring.

    There was low usage of functional outcome measurements in assessing patients.
