Referring to RA002 - face to face review - there are 5 areas to be covered (as a minimum 3 areas) what codes is everyone using to prove you have asked the questions.

or the review for Rheumatoid Arthritis there are 5 points to be covered (min of 3) - what codes are people using to
verify that the questions are being asked

ThanksAs a suggestion for the 5 areas in the face-to-face review: 1) Disease Activity - the code 38DZ gives a RA Disease Activity score (out of 10). 2) DMARD Discussion - a choice of three codes to record one 9kN3-1 (DMARD leaflet issued), 9kN6-1 (DMARD monitored in primary care), or 9kN7-1 (DMARD monitored in secondary are). 3) Surgery considered - a choice of either 8I6O Surgery not indicated or 8BQO Surgical intervention indicated. 4) Effect on Daily Life - this is the most difficult area. Nothing really appropriate. Suggest 16Z6, 16Z7, 16Z8 or 16Z9 (General health good, fair, poor or very poor) as a reasonable proxy. Referral to multidiciplinary team c
