A self-report RADAI (Rheumatoid Arthritis Disease Activity Index) count of painful joints can be informative in patients with rheumatic diseases other than rheumatoid arthritis.
Boxes are available on the MDHAQ to record scores for physical function, pain, patient global estimate, and RADAI self-report joint count.
Scoring templates are available on the MDHAQ to convert physical function scores from 0-30 to a 0-10 scale, and RADAI self-report joint counts scores from 0-48 to a 0-10 scale.
RAPID 3 includes the three patient reported outcome (PRO) measures in the RA core data set (physical function, pain, and global estimate); RAPID 4 adds a RADAI self-report joint count and RAPID 5 adds a physician global estimate.
The RADAI self-report joint count is positioned between two 0 to 10 visual VAS for pain and global status in order to reduce the likelihood of patients giving the same answer on both VAS.
PTJT = RADAI, the Rheumatoid Arthritis Disease Activity Index self-report joint count includes eight joints or joint groups, scored 0, 1, 2, or 3.
RAPID 4: Total of 4 measures--adds a RADAI patient self-report joint count PTJT (0-10) to RAPID 3, for a total of 0-40, which can be adjusted to 0-10, using the scoring template at the bottom of Page 1.
