    In this paper, ARMA makes the following recommendations: Develop multidisciplinary, networked, personalised approaches to pain as standard. Develop more community-based approaches to pain. Everyone with chronic pain should be offered a holistic assessment of their symptoms in primary care reviewing the impact on their physical and mental health, their activities of daily living and their wellbeing, including the ability to work/study, and explore any underlying causes of or contributors to their pain. A public health approach is needed based on community need to design and

    People with arthritis are being urged to lose weight and exercise more rather than rely on painkillers as the main therapies for their condition. NHS guidance from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) says people who are overweight should be told their pain can be reduced if they shed the pounds. Aerobic exercise such as walking, as well as strength training, can ease symptoms and improve quality of life. Exercise programmes may initially make the pain worse, but this should settle down, the guidance suggests. The guidelines also give recommendations on t

    This guide from Versus Arthritis was written in consultation with people with musculoskeletal conditions waiting for joint replacement surgery. It makes the case Integrated Care Systems, Primary Care Networks, secondary care providers, public health bodies and social care providers should all work together with local communities and the voluntary sector to deliver a support package to help to meet the needs of people with arthritis who are on surgery waiting lists. The six key elements of this are as follows: Clear communication must be provided to people with arthritis about when they c

    A drug used to treat rheumatoid arthritis could cut the number of Covid deaths and speed up recovery, a new scientific trial has found. The drug, tocilizumab, could save the lives of one in 25 coronavirus patients in hospital and reduce the need for ventilators in intensive care. Researchers say around half of the people admitted to hospital with coronavirus could benefit from the treatment. Scientists from the nationwide Recovery trial said when tocilizumab was given alongside the steroid dexamethasone, it reduced the absolute risk of mortality by four percentage points. The me

Zoe Chivers, Head of Services at Versus Arthritis, said: "We know that young people often face signi
