In the era of evidence-based practice, the role of the nurse in Rheumatology has broadened and became more complex, as a part of a multidisciplinary team. The European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) has published recommendations for the role of the nurse in the management of chronic inflammatory arthritis in 2012, with an updated version in 2018. The objective of this study was to assess the methodological quality and reporting clarity of these recommendations using the AGREE II tool.
