Advice from a Rheumatologist

To my “provider” friends in the blogosphere and twitter: I’m giving a talk to primary care docs, NPs and PAs in a couple weeks. The purpose is to be sort of a “Rheum 101” geared towards what primary care folks can do in their office vs referring to Rheum. I have divided it into essentially 2 pieces: 1. How to order and interpret immunologic testing and 2. How to aspirate joints and give steroid injections. If you have any ideas about what you think might be helpful to include, please leave me a comment. Thanks and I’ll let you know how it goes.
