Nivel explores how to successfully implement self-management interventions in real life contexts

Nivel participates in an international project to develop a core set of contextual factors to take into account when implementing promising self-management interventions in real life contexts. We focus on chronic diseases like diabetes, heart failure, COPD and obesity. We ask for your help in this development process.

On behalf of the COMPAR-EU consortium, we are looking for patients or patient representatives, healthcare professionals, researchers or policymakers familiar with (the care for) diabetes type 2, heart failure, COPD and/or obesity to take part in an online Delphi exercise. For further details please take a look at the flyer. You will then receive additional information about how to participate.

Why do we need your help?

Your participation will help us to make promising and safe interventions accessible and applicable for everyone.

About the research

During the last year we conducted a systematic review of the literature to identify contextual factors that may influence the successful implementation of promising self-management interventions in real life practice. We did this for the chronic diseases: diabetes type 2, heart failure, COPD and obesity. As a next step in the development of a core set of relevant contextual factors for implementation, we have identified 13 prototypical self-management interventions. We are now at the stage where we need to decide for each of these types of interventions what contextual factors contribute most to their successful implementation in real life. Therefore, we organize four separate studies, called Delphi’s, for diabetes, COPD, heart failure and obesity. If you participate, you will take part in one of them depending on your expertise or personal interest. The final results will be presented at an online platform accessible for healthcare providers.
