We allow half an hour for coaching our patients prior to CT and it will be interesting to see the results of your study.
I don’t have an answer as to a measuring tool that can determine if this makes a difference however our patients seem to get better as treatment progresses. We allow 30 minutes for first day of treatment and 20 minutes for consequent treatments. We are finding that as the patients become more comfortable with the process it can be done in 15 minutes.
I did attend a presentation where patients where not given as much coaching prior and still managed to comply during treatment. So it would be very interesting to see what your findings are.
Sorry that I haven’t answered your question.
