  1. Patient education in arthritis : Randomized controlled trial of a mail-delivered program.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    Self-management courses in arthritis have been shown to improve outcomes and to decrease medical resource utilization.

    We studied the effectiveness of a mail-delivered arthritis self-management program with the potential for extending these effects more broadly.

    Methods

    Randomized controlled trial of 375 program participants and 434 controls over a 6 month period.

    Baseline and 6 month data were analyzed for each group and between groups by paired 2 sample t test.

    The intervention consists of health assessment questionnaires at 3 month intervals, with computer processed recommendation letters and reports individualized to age, diagnosis, education level, disability, pain, medication, and other patient-specific variables.

    Results

    At 6 months, outcomes of function 14.7% ; 95% confidence limits 2.7,6.7), decreased pain (9% ; 2.8,15.2), global vitality (7% ; 2.8,11.2), and joint count (28% ; 20,36) were improved in the program group compared with controls (p<0.01).

    Exercise (35% ; 26,44) and self-efficacy (14.7% ; 9,20) were increased in the program group but not controls (p<0.001).

    Doctor visits/year were decreased by 16% (3,29) in the program group compared with controls (p<0.05) and days missed work or confined to home decreased by 52% (-3,107) in the program group compared with controls (p=0.06). (...)
