  1. A walking education program for patients with osteoarthritis of the knee: theory and intervention strategies.

    Article - En anglais

    Walking is an ideal physical activity for patients with osteoarthritis because it can help to improve functional status without exacerbating pain or necessitating an increase in the use of medication.

    Although patient education programs designed to encourage walking have become increasingly important in the management of this condition, there is no single synthesis or other published source of theory and intervention strategies to guide the practitioner in the development of such programs.

    The paper describes a hospital-based patient education program designed to enhance the functional capacity of patients who have osteoarthritis of the knee by encouraging the adoption and maintenance of walking.
