Expert patients

    Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


    In the July 2001 issue of BJTR there is a review of the arthritis self-management programme (ASMP). Eastwood and Lloyd cite our randomized controlled study of the ASMP, which was conducted not only to determine effectiveness in terms of use of self-management techniques but also to assess impact of participation in outcomes, such as self-efficacy, pain, fatigue, depressed mood and GP visits. Physical functioning, pain, fatigue and depression were assessed at baseline and at 4 and 12 months. We used standard measures for each of these dimensions, e.g. the health assessment questionnaire (Kirwan and Reeback, 1986). The article by Eastwood and Lloyd erroneously suggests that all dimensions were assessed ‘using the arthritis self-efficacy scale’.
