In Australia, at least 5000 children are affected by Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) at any one time.
Disease prevalence in Australia is between one and four cases per 1000 children. JIA can have significant associated morbidity and mortality.
Accurate and early diagnosis along with appropriate management and referral are essential for maximising patient outcomes and quality of life.
This guideline presents recommendations to assist GPs managing patients with JIA.
It focuses on short term care, long term care planning and management, and coordination of multidisciplinary care needs.
The guideline includes algorithms and resources to assist with the implementation of the recommendations.
The guideline has been endorsed by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).
