A randomized controlled trial comparing two self-administered educational strategies for patients with knee osteoarthritis.
The authors conducted a randomized clinical trial in patients with knee osteoarthritis to assess the efficacy of providing a video for entertainment education, in combination with two booklets, compared with providing the booklets alone. They found that, although both education strategies were associated with improved knowledge and reduced decisional conflict at 6 months, receiving the video + booklets in combination, compared with receiving the booklets alone, proved to be more effective in changing behaviors and appeared to have some advantages for Spanish speakers and those who were less educated.

Evaluation of patient willingness to adopt remote digital monitoring for diabetes management.
Investigators sought to identify the minimum effectiveness patients report they require to adopt 36 different remote digital monitoring (RDM) scenarios. Adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes living in 30 countries assessed three randomly selected scenarios from a total of 36 that described different combinations of digital monitoring tools. The investigators found that patients required greater health benefits to adopt more intrusive RDM modalities, food monitoring, and real-time feedback by a health care professional. They recommended that patient monitoring devices be designed to be minimally intrusive.
