Read the publication
This paper reports on the patient-reported data generated from Connection to Health, to identify the frequency of patients’ reported self-management problem and their self-management priorities; and examine the degree of alignment between patient priorities and the ultimate patient-healthcare team member selected behavioral goal. Key findings from this paper include:
- The most frequent self-management support problems patients reported included body mass index, aspects of diet, and physical activity.
- Patient-healthcare team member goal selection aligned well with patient self-management priorities when patients prioritized weight loss or physical activity, but not other self-management areas.
