Summary

This research focuses on communication practices between patients and health care professionals, like nurses, doctors, or physician assistants. The goal is to help improve communication about heart health issues.

This pilot (or Beta) study is designed to test our ability to recruit an appropriate sample of participants, and determine our ability to deliver and evaluate the effects of a web-based intervention. The investigators hypothesize that exposure to the intervention will result in measurable changes in self-reported knowledge, attitudes and behavior regarding communication between patients and health care professionals.

Participants in this research study are being recruited from the people who currently receive care at the Richmond Family Health Center of the Oregon Health & Science University. People who participate in this study will be between 55 and 70 years old, speak English as their preferred language, and have one of several possible diagnoses related to heart health. These could include, for example, hypertension, diabetes, asthma, or obesity.

Additionally, the investigators are recruiting a small number of health care professionals from the Richmond Family Health Center. Their participation will be similar to but separate from the participation of patients.

All participants will take two web-based surveys. Some participants will use a web-based tool that hopes to help improve communication between health care professionals and patients.

The surveys contain questions that explore the knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors of participants related to heart health and communication between health care professionals and patients.

Data analysis will focus upon identifying any changes that occurred in knowledge, attitudes, or behaviors with respect to health communication after using the web-based tool, as well as learning about what influences the quality and nature of communication between health care professionals and the patients they serve.

Measure of the burden of disease using the disability-adjusted-life-year (DALY). This time-based measure combines years of life lost due to premature mortality and years of life lost due to time lived in states of less than full health. The metric was developed to assess the burden of disease consistently across diseases, risk factors and regions.

The worsening of a disease over time. This concept is most often used for chronic and incurable diseases where the stage of the disease is an important determinant of therapy and prognosis.
