Abstract

In this study we examined the differences in perceptions of the patient’s health status between rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients and their spouses, and correlates of these differences with patients’ and spouses’ well-being. Methods. A sample of 188 couples with one member receiving treatment for RA were selected from the rheumatology clinics in Twente, The Netherlands. The mean age of both RA patients and spouses was 56 years. Respondents completed questionnaires, including estimations of both patients and spouses on the patient’s functional disabilities and pain, and scales on affect and marital commitment for patients and spouses.
