The goal of this project is to develop an online education program that provides patients with information about what gout is and how it can become a chronic issue. This online tool is meant to provide patients with educational information on how to manage their gout without it becoming a chronic condition. The website is designed to allow the patient fun and interesting ways to learn about gout and help them prepare for a visit with their doctor.
The specific aim of this online tool is to educate patients about gout. A secondary aim is to help physicians understand in advance of an office visit, what questions they may have, making the office visit more targeted.
50 current gout patients, all in various stages of the disease.
