For people with knee osteoarthritis (OA) exercise is part of the recommended core management alongside education and weight control. Online delivered exercise is increasingly used and may be a viable treatment option, especially when traditional onsite exercise delivery models are unavailable or inaccessible. However, its effect as compared to traditional onsite delivery models is unclear. In parallel, relatively little is known about the consumer experience, covering both patients and physiotherapists (PTs), of online exercise and education models in knee OA. As the use of online care models is evolving, we need both quantitative and qualitative insights to understand how to best utilize online care models in OA. As such, the purpose of this mixed-methods study was two-fold: 1) To compare immediate (3 months) and long-term (12 months) changes in knee OA symptoms between online and onsite delivery of exercise and education using the Good Life with osteoArthritis in Denmark (GLA:D®) treatment program. 2) To investigate how people with knee OA and PTs experience online delivery of exercise and education in the online version of the GLA:D® treatment program.
