TECHNOLOGY VERSUS TRADITION: A NON-INFERIORITY TRIAL COMPARING VIDEO TO FACE-TO-FACE CONSULTATIONS WITH A PHYSIOTHERAPIST FOR PEOPLE WITH KNEE OSTEOARTHRITIS
Grant number: 1157977 | Funding period: 2019 - 2023
Exercise is the corner-stone of management for people with knee osteoarthritis and is typically provided by physiotherapists during face-to-face consultations. This study will compare the effectiveness of video consultations with physiotherapists to traditional face-to-face consultations by evaluating clinical outcomes, patient and therapist acceptability, and the costs of delivering care with these two approaches.
