TLDR
The social environment was found to operate on the core health outcome, pain severity, via several pathways, and the status of being married but also the quality of the relationship in terms of long-term stress and emotional support may be useful prognostic factors in RA.

Persons with rheumatoid arthritis and social isolation
TLDR
The findings revealed that as the state of morale decreased, social isolation increased, and decreased length of time of disease was also found as social isolation scores increased.
Physical training in rheumatoid arthritis: a controlled long-term study. I.
TLDR
Physiological tests and clinical parameters show unanimously a better disease outcome in the active group of patients and it is believed that it is better to be overactive rather than the reverse in rheumatoid arthritis.
Team versus non-team outpatient care in rheumatoid arthritis. A comprehensive outcome evaluation including an overall health measure.
TLDR

Evaluation of a structured multidisciplinary day care program in rheumatoid arthritis. A similar effect in newly diagnosed and long-standing disease.
TLDR

Rehabilitation for rheumatoid arthritis patients. A controlled trial.
TLDR
Experimental patients demonstrated significant improvement compared with control patients in several functional status, mental health, and disease activity measures at 1 year after controlling for groups differences.
