Professor Nancy Baker has been a core member of the committee charged with developing the recently released 2022 American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Guideline for Exercise, Rehabilitation, Diet, and Additional Integrative Interventions for Rheumatoid Arthritis. This guideline is the first in ACR history to provide recommendations for non-pharmacological treatments for rheumatoid arthritis. Occupational therapy and interventions routinely provided by occupational therapists is a cornerstone of many of the rehabilitation recommendations. Dr Baker recently presented the results of these guidelines along with her fellow Core Team Members at the National Conference ACR Convergence in Philadelphia. View the summary.
