Vasculitis Assessment Instruments

The VCRC investigators have been, and continue to be, heavily involved in the development and validation of outcome measurement tools for vasculitis. Several different similar, but still unique, instruments have been developed for vasculitis. These tools include generic tools for all types of vasculitis as well as some disease-specific measures. We provide on this website instructions on the use of the instruments, a glossary of terms necessary to help complete the instruments, training information on the instrument, and blank data forms that can be downloaded.
