A NIAMS-funded study recently published in Arthritis Care & Research determined that poor communication and care coordination between providers and their #lupus patients resulted in more disease damage. The study was conducted by researchers at The Rosalind Russell/Ephraim P. Engleman Rheumatology Research Center and the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies at UCSF.
