Study Summary

This study will test whether, among patients undergoing surgery for peripheral artery disease (PAD), the addition of an online multimedia patient education video to the current education regimen will improve PAD knowledge, activation, and self-care engagement. The study will randomize 150 participants to one of 2 groups: current education regimen vs. current education regiment with video. The primary outcome is stage of self-care engagement. Secondary outcomes are PAD knowledge, self-efficacy, and activation. A subset of participants will also be randomly selected to participate in semi-structured interviews. Study duration for participants is 6 months.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
