Health education research in arthritis and musculoskeletal disease experienced extraordinary growth in the 1980s.
In this article we discuss opportunities for health education in arthritis and musculoskeletal disease, and the effectiveness of evaluated programs to influence knowledge, behavior, and health status of persons with arthritis.
Additionally, we review developments in theory and trends in research that we expect to be influential in the next decade.
Educational opportunities for primary prevention of arthritis are limited.
However, a large variety of organized programs, planned according to commonly accepted principles of education, psychology, and psychotherapy, and applied consistently by personnel with some kind of training, have been able to produce desirable changes in knowledge, behavior, and health outcome in arthritis patients, over and above the medical treatment and incidental education to which they have already been exposed.
