SIGHT: Screening and Intervention for Glaucoma and Eye Health Through Telemedicine
This is a multiple site, randomized study that will assess the effects of personalized eHealth education and motivational-interviewing-based counseling on patient adherence to physician follow-up appointments.
|Condition or Disease||Intervention/Treatment||Phase|
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the effects of personalized eHealth education and motivational-interviewing-based counseling on adherence to glaucoma follow-up care compared to standard education delivered by a trained staff member. Participants will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to either standard education and care navigation or eHealth education, counseling and care navigation.
Arms and Interventions
|Experimental: Personalized eHealth Education & Motivational Interviewing|
Personalized eHealth Glaucoma Education & Motivational Interviewing
Behavioral: Personalized eHealth Education & Motivational Interviewing
This intervention uses a web-based application to generate personalized education materials for patients based on their eye health screening results and barriers to follow up care. A glaucoma counselor trained in brief, glaucoma-specific motivational interviewing (MI) uses the individualized content generated from this web- based application to form the basis of her conversation with the patient to coach the patient to engage in follow-up care.
|No Intervention: Standard Education|
Participant will receive standard glaucoma education.
Primary Outcome Measures
