The MACTAR Patient Preference Disability Questionnaire--an individualized functional priority approach for assessing improvement in physical disability in clinical trials in rheumatoid arthritis



The MACTAR Patient Preference Disability Questionnaire--an individualized functional priority approach for assessing improvement in physical disability in clinical trials in rheumatoid arthritis



Journal of Rheumatology 14(3): 446-451



A new approach to assessing disability in arthritis that quantifies the functional priorities of the patient is described. Comparison against global improvement suggests that this instrument has the potential to detect small clinically important changes in function.
