One hundred patients admitted to the rheumatological ward were questioned concerning the will to discuss their medical problems with other in-patients and the impact of such obtained data on their attitude to medical problems. The preliminary results indicate that almost half of the patients considered the data obtained from other in-patients as important. The will to discuss is also common, the most frequently the will was declared by female patients younger that 30 or older that 51. There was no significant effect of education on the investigated will to discuss medical problems. The obtained data suggested that exchange of information between in-patients may be an important factor in their cooperation in the management of the rheumatic diseases, and further studies in the field are needed.
