The website is a free educational resource for health care professionals. It contains more than 2000 subtopics covering all aspects of adult rheumatology. The information available here is presented in the form of a mind map. This allows you to find anything you need with a few mouse clicks. You can access it by clicking on the MIND MAP link. Please spend a moment familiarising yourself with the basics of navigating mind maps here.

The mind map covers the majority of rheumatic conditions including rare ones that a medical doctor and a rheumatologist can encounter. Specific attention which can be helpful for trainee doctors is paid to clinical aspects, e.g., what to ask when you suspect a certain rheumatic illness, what to look for at the examination, which investigations to order, what are diagnostic/classification criteria, differential diagnosis, and current treatment options. The map is structured with the expectation that a doctor using it has completed at least several years of postgraduate medical training. Basic concepts (e.g., what is inflammatory or mechanical joint pain; the fundamentals of joint examination; the basics of laboratory tests and X-ray interpretation) are not provided. As described in the Disclaimer, patients are discouraged from using the website.

The information available in the mind map is based on current rheumatology practice in the United Kingdom. The mind map has direct online links to hundreds of resources including BSR, NICE, SIGN, EULAR, and also ACR guidelines and recommendations, NHS England clinical commissioning policies, medical and patient societies, online calculators, databases, downloadable documents, etc.
