Implementation of Collaborative Self-management Services to Promote Physical Activity

2016-11-30 15:45:37 | BioPortfolio


Background: The growing awareness on the health burden generated by insufficient levels of physical activity has prompted the interest for deploying community-based initiatives aiming at fostering active healthy living. It is of note, however, that, to our knowledge, none of the interventions evaluated so far have reached large scale adoption. The current protocol relies on the general hypothesis that properly tailored self-management programs, fully integrated in the patient's action plan with remote off-line professional support, may induce sustained behavioral changes resulting in exercise health behavior. Accordingly, the current manuscript addresses those unmet requirements, namely: i) Workflow design of the PA services engaging both patients and health professionals; ii) Enhanced information and communication technologies (ICT)-support; iii) Evaluation strategies including structured indicators; and, iv) Implementation of innovative business models. The main outcome of the current protocol will be a roadmap for large scale deployment and assessment of novel collaborative self-management PA services in the region of Catalonia (7.5 million citizens).

Methods: The protocol has been designed as part of the regional deployment of integrated care services in Catalonia (2016-2020). It has been conceived has a two-year (2017-2018) test bed period.

Aims: The protocol uses a population-health approach to addresses the four aims: i) Prehabilitation for high risk candidates to major surgery; ii) Community-based rehabilitation for clinical stable chronic patients with moderate to severe disease; and, iii) Promotion of physical activity and healthy lifestyles for citizens at risk and patients with mild disease.
