Introduction
For three long-term care patient groups e-health self-management support programs (patients with cardiovascular risk (abstract 1) rheumatoid arthritis (abstract 2) and severe mental illness (abstract 3)) have been developed according to the six steps of Intervention Mapping:
1) needs assessment;
2) define proximal program objectives:
3) selection of theory and evidence based methods and practical strategies;
4) produce and write the program components;
5) develop an implementation plan;
6) evaluate the program. In this symposium the development of the three feasibility studies will be presented with the preliminary results.
These studies aimed to evaluate the potential effectiveness of the ehealth self-management support programs and determine effect sizes for the various outcomes, identify outcome measures most likely to capture potential patient benefits and evaluate long-term participation and attrition rates for the e-health self-management support programs.

Aim
This symposium aims to present insight into the reach and boundaries of e-health selfmanagement support programs for patients with a chronic condition and nurses’ role and activities in the light of e-health interventions.
