Management of patients with musculoskeletal and rheumatic conditions

The British Society for Rheumatology and other partners have published guidance on the management of patients with musculoskeletal and rheumatic conditions who are on corticosteroids, require initiation of oral/IV corticosteroids or a corticosteroid injection.

This guidance relates to musculoskeletal (MSK) service provision across primary, community and secondary care and is applicable to adults and children. The use of steroid medication is one of the management options for a range of MSK conditions and in particular rheumatic conditions, and this guidance aims to assist decisions on the use of such medication during the pandemic.
