[Research Presentation] The purpose of this study was to explore the predictors of disability in rheumatoid arthritis patients. We conducted a prospective cross- sectional study with a convenience sampling method. One hundred and fifty patients regularly visiting rheumatologic outpatient clinics at a local regional teaching hospital and a medical center in north Taiwan were recruited. The Center for epidemiological survey depression scale (CES-D), the Chinese version of the brief pain inventory (BPI-C), and the health assessment questionnaire (HAQ) were used to assess of depressive tendency, pain and disability respectively. Descriptive statistical method was carried out such as Independent t-test, one-way analysis of variance and post-hoc comparison. Correlation analysis was made by Pearson's product correlation. The multiple regression analysis was used to explore the predictors of disability. Results indicated that most patients had mild disability (average HAQ score= 0.61). Depression score was significantly and positively correlated with pain severity (r=0.39).
