Abstract:

Poster presented on: Monday, July 22, 2013, Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Purpose: Hepatitis B virus is second only to tobacco as a known human carcinogen. However, chronic hepatitis B usually does not produce symptoms and people feel healthy even in the early stages of live cancer. Therefore, chronically infected people should perceive it as serious health problem, and move on to appropriate health behaviour. The purpose of this paper is to develop and validate an online program for promoting self-management among Korean patients with chronic hepatitis B.

Methods: The online program was developed using prototyping approach and system developing life cycle method. The structure of the online program was based on self-management model theory for chronic disease patients. The program was evaluated by users for their satisfaction with the web-site and experts for the quality of the site. To evaluate application of the online program, knowledge and self-management compliance of the users were measured and compared before and after application of the online program for three weeks.

Results: The developed online program is registered at the web address: http://www.hepb.co.kr/. The main screen of the site is composed of six areas: introduction with intromovie; knowing exactly hepatitis B; lifelong health management; management of my liver health; bulletin board; and sharing board. There were statistically significant increases in knowledge and self-management compliance between pretest and posttest in the user group.

Conclusion: An online program with high accessibility and applicability including information, motivation, and behavior skill factors can promote self-management of the patient with chronic hepatitis B. Finding from this study allows Korean patients with chronic hepatitis B to engage in proactive and effective health management in the community or clinical practice.
