Samenvatting

Objective. To compare the effectiveness of two educational courses aiming to improve adherence to recommendations in a Dutch physiotherapy practice guideline for hip and knee OA.Methods. Physiotherapists (PTs) from three regions in The Netherlands were invited to participate in a study comparing an interactive workshop (IW) with conventional education (CE). Participants were randomly assigned to one of the two courses. Satisfaction with the course (scale 0-10), knowledge (score range 0-76) and guideline adherence (score range 0-72) were measured at baseline, immediately after the educational course and 3 months after that. Data were analysed using a linear mixed model.Results. In total, 203 (10%) PTs participated in the IW (n = 108) and the CE (n = 95). There were no differences between groups at baseline. Satisfaction was significantly higher in the IW than in the CE group [mean scores (s.d.) 7.5 (1.1) and 6.7 (1.6), respectively (P < 0.001)]. A significantly greater improvement in adherence was seen over time in the IW group compared with the CE group (F = 3.763, P = 0.024), whereas the difference in improvement of knowledge was not significant (F = 1.283, P = 0.278).Conclusion. An IW led to greater satisfaction and was more effective in improving adherence to recommendations in a PT guideline on hip and knee OA than CE, whereas the increase in knowledge did not differ significantly.
