Illness Scripts

An illness script is a clinician’s mental representation of key aspects of a particular disease. Here, we present to you short illness scripts for major rheumatologic diseases that you can use in the clinic, on the wards, during test preparation, or in your teaching sessions. More illness scripts will be added with time. Let us know via email on twitter (@Rheum_SIM) what other illness scripts you would like to see or if you would like to contribute one!
