EULAR Online Course for Health Professionals in Rheumatology - endorsed by Royal Dutch Society for Physical Therapy (KNGF) for 3 years

The EULAR Online Course for Health Professionals is aimed at health professionals in rheumatology (HPRs) who play an important role in the management of rheumatic conditions: e.g. nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and psychologists.

It consists of a total of eight modules, four disease-specific modules (one on RA, one on OA, one on Fibromyalgia and one on regional musculoskeletal pain syndromes) and 4 generic modules (assessment and evaluation; interventions; psychosocial approaches and evidence-based practice). Care is given to integrate the multi disciplinary perspective of the treatment of rheumatic diseases.

The duration of the course is approx. nine months with an automatic free of charge extension of a second year if the modules are not completed or the exam not passed. A final examination is offered once a year and a EULAR certificate is issued upon passing the exam.

The EULAR online course for HPRs was granted credits in the Netherlands by the accreditation committees of the following health professional disciplines: Physical Therapists (60 credits), Nurses (64 credits), Nurse Practitioners (50 credits) and Occupational Therapists, Exercise Therapists and Podiatrists (40 credits).

The online course was developed with a substantial grant from EULAR and is continuously highly subsidised by EULAR, so that the entire course can be offered at the lowest price possible. Prices: regular learner - 150EUR, EULAR School of Rheumatology member - 125 EUR. Low and middle income countries below 10'000 US$: regular learner - 125 EUR, EULAR School of Rheumatology member - 100 EUR. List LMI countries.

EULAR extends sincere thanks to all authors and contributors for working on a voluntary basis and without compensation to create and regularly update its online courses!
