Abstract Share this page

Abstract Chronic pain patients frequently suffer from depression. This systematic review finds that patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have a higher prevalence of depression than controls without RA. Depression is related to pain intensity, passive coping strategies and disability. For patients this may result in a decreased quality of life and a shorter lifespan. For society it results in increased health costs.
