Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Rheumatoid and Osteoarthritis Behavioral: Weight control and physical activity promotion Phase 2 Phase 3

Detailed Description:

The aims of this research are to modify well-established weight management techniques and physical activity promotion interventions according to ICSI recommendations, implement the interventions in a diverse patient population, demonstrate the short and long term impact of the interventions.

The approach will be an individual randomized controlled trial of 400 patients, 200 each in a coach-supported intervention, 200 in a self-directed intervention.
