Abstract or description

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic disease affecting fewer men than women. We
systematically reviewed the literature on impact and self-management of RA men. Twenty
eight papers were included, and grouped into two categories: Psychosocial impact of RA; and Coping and self-management. This review finds gender differences relating to quality of life; work; distress; self-management; coping; and support. We conclude there is a dearth of literature focussing on RA men only, and mixed gender studies include insufficient men to draw strong conclusions about men. Thus, further research is needed to understand the support needs of men with RA in depth.
