The authors explored gout patient education in primary care from the perspectives of Māori and Pākehā people with gout. The findings include that "Māori and Pākehā patients derived their gout education from multiple sources – health professionals, educational resources, family and friends, and their own experiences. Māori with gout preferred face-to-face communication of information over written material. Patients from both ethnicity groups had significant gaps in their knowledge about gout that require further education."
