For patients, returning to a normal life is the most important outcome in early rheumatoid arthritis. In this longitudinal, qualitative study, researchers individually interviewed 26 patients with early rheumatoid arthritis (RA) 4 months to 6 months after the start of their first treatment. Fourteen patients participated in one of three focus groups that occurred at least 1 year after the beginning of treatment. This study was part of the Care for early RA (CareRA) trial, a prospective, 2-year, multicenter, randomized controlled trial.
