Abstract:In the past few years the amount of people with chronic diseases has increased and will keep increasing in the future. In order to reduce physical and psychological symptoms of chronic diseases, coping with chronic diseases and a healthy lifestyle get more important. The aim of this research was to evaluate the effect of Mijn GezondheidsPlatform (MGP) on self-management and physical activity of patients with chronic diseases like diabetes mellitus type 2 (DM2), asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cardiovascular risico management (CVRM). Moreover, the relationship between personality traits and self-management was examined to find out if certain personalities have a higher ability to cope with their diseases. Data were collected with three questionnaires (Ten Item Personality Inventory (TIPI), International Physical Activity Questionnaire – Short Form (IPAQ-SF) and Patient Activation Measure – 13 Items (PAM-13)) among 206 participants at five points of measurements in a time period of 12 months. This sample consisted of 57 participants in the intervention group (MGP-users) and 149 in the control group (MGP-non-users). All participants were members of the Dutch care group PoZoB (Praktijkondersteuning Zuidoost-Brabant). In order to analyze the three research questions, a “spearman correlation” and two “univariate covariation analysis” were conducted. The results of this study showed that there is no significant relationship between the Big-5 personality traits and self-management (r = .05 to .13). Moreover, no significant difference was found between the groups. Finally, there was no significant effect of MGP on self-management (p =.18) and physical activity (p = .87). On the basis of the results it can be concluded that there is no statistically significant effect of MGP on self-management and physical activity. The results show that health-promoting persuasive technologies like MGP should be improved in order to be able to increase self-management and physical activity. Therefore, more research on personality traits and health-promoting applications is needed.
