      The proposed research is a systematic review and meta-analysis of available randomised controlled trials of digital interventions to promote self-management in people with osteoarthritis. The effects of self-management programs, on patient outcomes such as pain, disability, function and quality of life will be analysed in direct pairwise meta-analysis. The health service outcomes and cost effectiveness data will also be extracted if reported in the papers and will be synthesised narratively.
