EULAR recommendations lay versions
EULAR has published recommendations for, among others, the management of several rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases addressed to our community.
For EULAR it is essential that the dissemination of these recommendations reaches patients’ organisations as well as healthcare professionals to support patients and carers to manage their disease.
EULAR now provides lay summaries of all recommendations, in English, and calls on all interested organisations to disseminate them and encourage the translation of these lay versions in their own language.

ARD lay summaries
The Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases (ARD) now also provides short research summaries for patients and non-clinicians to accompany selected key research papers published in the journal. These aim to clearly explain the results of the research studies as well as any implications for treatment of the specific condition. The summaries are written in plain language in a consistently structured format and checked for accuracy and readability by expert rheumatologists and people from EULAR’s patient research partner network.
