Raynaud's phenomenon (RP) and digital ulcers (DUs) are important disease manifestations of systemic sclerosis (SSc) that can lead to significant pain and disability. It is essential when studying these disease features to utilize outcome measures that fully evaluate the complexities of RP and DUs . The Outcome Measures in Rheumatology (OMERACT) Vascular Disease in SSc Working Group is applying the OMERACT filter 2.1 to identify a core set of disease domains that encompass the full burden of SSc-related RP and DUs. Progress to date and future research plans were presented during a Special Interest Group held in December 2020.
