Doctors all over the world are now using a simple clinical skill to help recognise the most common form of childhood arthritis, thanks to research by paediatric rheumatologists at Newcastle University.

Professor Helen Foster explains how she set about improving the teaching of skills to identify juvenile idiopathic arthritis after research highlighted that many doctors were unable to diagnose the condition which can leave patients deformed, blind and with a poor quality of life if not treated promptly.

She is filmed at the Great North Children’s Hospital, which is part of Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and is where she puts into practice her knowledge of childhood arthritis by treating many children and young people in her role as a consultant paediatric rheumatologist.
