Description

Description of data capture A pragmatic, cluster-randomised trial of 36 districts/counties (clusters) within the provinces of Heilongjiang, Jiangsu, Hunan, and Chongqing, China. Clusters were randomised to one of four case-management approaches using stratification and restriction. The four arms were standard of care (control), or receiving adherence reminders from (i) text messages, (ii) an electronic medication monitor or (iii) both. See paper for more details on the intervention definitions. TB patients in these clusters were recruited at the start of treatment and followed up for six months. The primary outcome was the percentage of patient-months on TB treatment where at least 20% of doses were missed as measured by pill count and failure to open the medication monitor. Secondary outcomes included additional adherence measures and standard treatment outcome measures. Interventions were not masked to study staff and patients.
