Over half of the participants in this sample had cognitive impairment according to an objective screener. Reduced reported functional cognition was associated with reduced participation independent of the effects of other disease-related factors, such as pain, sleep, and depressive symptoms. These findings provide rationale for further and more comprehensive investigation into cognitive impairment and its functional relevance in SLE.
