Total skin self-examination at home for people treated for cutaneous melanoma: development and pilot of a digital intervention.

Murchie P, Allan JL, Brant W, Dennis M, Hall S, Masthoff J, Walter FM, Johnston M - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Northeast Scotland.A number of practical issues to improve the usability of the intervention were identified.The proportion of participants reporting intention to check their skin at least monthly increased during the intervention as did confidence to conduct a skin check.

(A) Model demonstrating theoretical processes of ASICA application according to IMB model—adapted from Cowling et al.24 (B) Schematic demonstrating operationalisation of components and processes of ASICA intervention adapted from Cowling et al24 (ASICA, Achieving Self-directed Integrated Cancer Aftercare; IMB, Information–Motivation–Behaviour skills; TSSEs, total skin self-examinations).

Mentions: By consensus with the research team, it was decided that the IMB model offered the most promise in explaining current use of TSSEs.23 Using this model, the components for a potential intervention were theorised (ie, components that would provide information about TSSEs, motivate individuals to perform TSSE, and develop skills and confidence to perform TSSE) and the mechanism to prompt, record and respond to TSSEs by patients in their own homes was conceptualised. This is illustrated in figure 2A, B.2324
