Apropos of the article about preventive health care for patients with systemic lupus erythematosus in this issue of Arthritis Research & Therapy, we offer some thoughts about how best to delineate the roles of the specialist (rheumatologist) and the generalist in the provision of services to these patients. Even in the best circumstances, these services are now provided at a rate that is less than optimal. We also offer a point about empowering patients to become vigilant about their own care.
