Clinical Trial Summary

This study evaluates if motivational interviewing sessions aiming to motivate recently discharged patients with either chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or congestive heart failure to be active in post-discharge self-management can reduce re-hospitalization rates.


Clinical Trial Description

Included patients transition to home will be bridged through a telephone-call from a patient activation coach two days post-discharge. The patients will thereafter get motivational interviewing sessions by the same patient activation coach with the the goal that the patients are motivated to the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to manage the four main activity areas: 1) medication management; 2) adhere to care plan/ follow-up visits according to the discharge plan; 3) recognize indications (symptoms/signs) that the condition is worsening and how to respond; and 4) contact and manage relations/encounters with health care providers. Patients in control group will receive standard care, i.e. discharge and follow-up as in normal procedures. The investigators will use a randomization in permuted blocks of 10 intervention patients and 10 control patients included. To test the hypothesis that the re-hospitalizations rate is 15 % lower in the intervention group compared to the control group 242 patients (121 per group) are needed for power of 80% with the level of significance set to 5 % using two-sided chi-square. ;
