|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Gout Arthritis Crystal Arthropathy||Other: nurse led plus standard of care|
There is evidence from other chronic diseases that nurse led care in addition to standard of care ameliorates outcomes.
In gout the primary target is the serum uric acid level (SUA). We intend to demonstrate the superiority of a structured nurse led patient management programme over standard of care in a randomized controlled study.
The primary endpoint is the percentage of patients reaching the target SUA level at 6 months follow-up.

Experimental: Nurse led plus standard of care
Nurse Led Patient Management Programme to Improve Outcomes in Gout and Standard of care for gout patients, including nurse delivered patient education and follow up
Other: nurse led plus standard of care
structured nurse led patient management programme: Patient education will be done by a specialised nurse and nurse consultations and phone calls will be done.
No Intervention: Standard of care
Standard of care for gout patients
- Serum uric acid level at 6 months Follow-up [ Time Frame: 6 months ]percentage of patients who reach the SUA target level of 360 umol/l
- Longterm achievement of the target SUA at 12 months [ Time Frame: 12 months ]percentage of patients who reach the SUA target level of 360 umol/l
