A randomised trial with individual patients as units of observation will be carried out. Health coaching is used to modify health behaviour and thus improve disease control and health status, as well as use of health care services. A personal health coach is assigned to each patient and they are in weekly contact through telephone. The intervention lasts for 12 months. No intervention is offered to the patients in the control arm.
