NAF Founder's Message
Formation of NRS and NAF is directed primarily towards patient education, awareness and support so that they can cope better with their Rheumatological disease. Being a relatively new specialty very few Rheumatologists are available although the patient burden is shared by clinicians from all specialties especially General / Family Physicians, Orthopedic Surgeons and Physiotherapists.
We urge to strengthen this liaison and embrace other specialties like Phlmonology, Dermatology, Nephrology, Cardiology, Endocrinology, Infectious diseases, Gastroentrology, Neurology and Orthopedics. We encourage all to join so that in due course of time this effort world become a platform to share knowledge and experience for quality care of patient affected by Rheumatological diseases. We firmly believe that an educated and experienced professional with updated knowledge can take better care of his or her patients. Likewise, a well informed patient can better understand and discuss his or her disease and treatment modalities.
