polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (pJIA)

Education / CME / MOC II

The goal of the pJIA project is to establish a system of care to improve outcomes for patients with polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (pJIA), utilizing appropriate referral to rheumatology for diagnosis and plans of care, and co-management of pJIA in the medical home for primary care providers. This would include coordinating primary care, immunization decisions for patients using immunosuppressive medications, and helping children deal with chronic pain and depression due to functional limitations.
