Development and pilot testing of multimedia patient education tools for patients with knee osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Researched developed multimedia educational tools that incorporated videos to help patients understand their chronic diseases including osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Tools were developed in English and Spanish. A total of 60 patients (20 per disease) were recruited to see the videos and were interviewed after all. All participants gave them a favorable rating and felt it helped them understand the disease, the importance of taking their medications, and seeing their doctor regularly. They found the videos and accompanying materials easy to use and easy to understand.
