A supported self-management approach to gout has been developed which incorporates self-testing of urate levels and a smartphone application that will prompt participants to self-test and allow clinical researchers to titrate urate lowering therapies. This study evaluates whether the approach to gout is able to achieve target levels of serum urate, and better control of gout flares.
The feasibility of this approach will be evaluated in patients with gout referred to secondary care.
