A randomized comparison group pretest-posttest experimental design was used to determine computer-assisted instruction effects on adherence to implementing house dust mite avoidance measures in adult atopic asthmatics.
Fifty-two subjects were randomly assigned to comparison and experimental groups.
The comparison group received traditional instruction in avoidance measures while the experimental group received traditional instruction supplemented by identical information provided by computer-assisted reinforcement of instruction.
Adherence was measured by subjects' self-ratings and investigators' observations.
