Primary aims of this feasibility study are to determine the extent participants (a) use a Tailored Interactive Computer Intervention (TIC) and (b) find TIC useful. Secondary aims are (a) to assess the potential for TIC to effect an increase in participant consumption of calcium and Vitamin D and (b) to test measures specific to osteoporosis; specifically health beliefs, self-regulation ability, and social interaction. A Model of Behavior Change provides the framework. In this model I propose that health status is determined, in part, by self-management behaviors. Engagement in specific self-management behaviors is proposed to occur because of health beliefs, self-regulation ability, and social interaction that supports behaviors. A delayed treatment quasi-experimental design will be used. A convenience sample of nine peri-menopausal women will be sought. The intervention will be delivered with a desktop computer located at a clinic and each participant will receive a pocket computer with wireless connection to the Internet. Content is based on standards set by the Arthritis Foundation and tailored to health beliefs of participants. The intervention is designed to increase beliefs, self-regulation ability, and social interaction related to osteoporosis. Outcome measures of use, usefulness, health beliefs, self-regulation ability, and social interaction will be obtained. All participants will be involved in two phases of the study. Phase I is an observational phase and Phase II is the treatment phase. Using nonparametric statistics outcomes will be compared pre to post intervention and between phase I and phase II. The results of this study will provide knowledge and experience to improve the intervention, plan further studies, and yield preliminary data. This study is significant because it test the effects of TIC on self-management behavior using a convenient pocket wireless computer that will provide information, facilitates self-monitoring, and enable social interaction.
