Title A Comparison of Giant Cell Arteritis Management in Subspecialty and Primary Care Settings

Subject Vascular Disorders; Neuro-Ophth & Systyemic Disease (eg. MS, MG, Thyroid)
Description Immediate administration of glucocorticoids is essential in the treatment of suspected giant cell arteritis (GCA). The choice of medication dose and route depends on patient-specific factors, but may also reflect physicianspecific ones, including subspecialty discipline. We have compared the management of suspected GCA cases in subspecialty versus primary care settings to: (1) identify possibly discrepancies in management and (2) promote a broader understanding of the evidence-based management of GCA.
