FM in rheumatology practice: a survey of Canadian rheumatologists

  [ 23 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • April 2, 1995


OBJECTIVE. To determine the perceived proportion of fibromyalgia
(FMS) among new consultations in rheumatology practices
relative to other rheumatologic disorders.

METHODS. We
conducted a cross sectional random mail survey of 100 Canadian
rheumatologists. The sampling frame was the 1991 membership
directory of the Canadian Rheumatology Association from which
100 nonpediatric rheumatologists practising in Canada were
selected by stratified random sampling.

RESULTS. Results from
89 respondents indicate that FMS is perceived to be one of the
3 most common diagnoses among new patient consultations across
Canada. Perceived incidence was not affected by urban size or
university affiliation of practice. FMS was the only
rheumatologic disorder believed by a majority of respondents
to have increased in proportion over the past 5 years.

CONCLUSION. In Canada, FMS appears to contribute to a high
proportion of outpatient care in rheumatology.
