Abstract
Background: Online interventions targeting a healthy lifestyle in adults with type 2 diabetes are more effective when informed by behaviour change theories. Although these theories provide guidance in developing the content of an intervention, information regarding how to present this content in an engaging way is often lacking. Consequently, incorporating users' views in the creation of eHealth interventions has become an important target. Methods: Via a qualitative interview study with 21 adults with type 2 diabetes who had completed an online self-regulation-based intervention (MyPlan 2.0'), we assessed participants' opinions regarding the usefulness of the implemented self-regulation techniques, the design of the programme as well as their knowledge regarding physical activity and sedentary behaviour. A directed content analysis was performed to synthesize the interview data. Results: Participants experienced difficulties completing the coping planning component. The simple design of the website was considered helpful, and most participants were aware of the beneficial effects of an active lifestyle. Conclusions: MyPlan 2.0' was well-accepted by the majority of participants. However, the coping planning component will need to be adapted. Based on these findings, recommendations on how to tailor eHealth interventions to the population of adults with type 2 diabetes have been formulated.
