Abstract [en]

Background: Self-efficacy is positively associated with adherence behaviours and rehabilitation outcomes following Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction. An internet resource can be an effective way to provide information, goal setting, patient monitoring and hence support overall self management. Purpose: This study examined the feasibility of a three month Internet-based intervention (mobile oriented site) to enhance recovery for patients, following ACL reconstruction. The potential effect of the internet-based intervention on knee pain, function, self-efficacy and fear of pain were also assessed. Method: This was a pilot randomised controlled trial (RCT) with pre and post intervention design (assessments at one week and three months following ACL reconstruction) comparing: (1) a control group and (2) an intervention group (internet-based intervention). A set of qualitative and quantitative assessments were included to evaluate potential improvements in self-efficacy, pain and function and perception of the internet intervention. Results and conclusion: Seventeen participants were available for analysis (n =10 intervention and n = 7 control group). Participants reported the internet-based intervention to be a useful tool for information, reminder and reinforcement for performing their exercise rehabilitation with 30.3% ( 35.3%) adherence to the internet-based intervention. No differences were observed between the groups over time on the outcome questionnaires (p amp;gt; 0.05). Australian New Zealand Clinical Trials Registry (ANZCTR): ACTRN12616001379404.
