Abstract

Gout, a common form of inflammatory arthritis, has been markedly understudied relative to other rheumatologic conditions. As a result, evidence guiding clinical management in gout has traditionally been lacking. Burgeoning data suggests that quality of gout care in gout is frequently suboptimal. In this paper, we examine the evidence supporting gout management strategies in clinical practice. In addition, we examine consensus building efforts that have culminated in the recent publication of gout management quality indicators. We also discuss the need for future initiatives aimed at improving patient safety and quality of care in gout.
