The Arthritis Impact Measurement Scales (AIMS) were administered to 120 patients with rheumatoid arthritis. These patients also rated the importance of various aspects of their treatment. Our findings support the validity of the pain, anxiety, depression, dexterity, and physical activity subscales of the AIMS. The household activity subscale, however, may not be appropriate for use with men, and the activities of daily living subscale may be insensitive to mild impairment.
