Six hundred and fifty telephone calls in response to a television programme about arthritis have been analysed for their content.
Social and psychological isolation, lack of pain control and fears of side effects from tablets were the main concerns of callers.
It is suggested that disease-orientated telephone help lines should be considered, and that future initiatives in public education should target some of the concerns expressed in this survey.
