Challenges in Implementing Treat-to-Target Strategies in Rheumatology

Julia A Ford et al. Rheum Dis Clin North Am. .

Abstract

Despite evidence that treat-to-target (TTT) approaches lead to better disease outcomes in RA, TTT is not widely implemented in rheumatology clinics in North America. This article discusses the barriers (including access to care, patient and physician factors, and systems issues) to implementing TTT in the clinic, and proposes possible solutions and future research directions.

Keywords: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA); Treat-to-target; Treatment strategy.
