Abstrakt

To design and evaluate a mental health treatment program and internet-based delivery platform for patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD) attending cardiac rehabilitation with the aim of reducing the risks associated with anxiety and/or depression. Patients diagnosed with IHD and comorbid anxiety and/or depression. Participatory design of treatment program and internet platform through staged inclusion of participants in two groups. Group 1 was enrolled as co-researchers with prolonged engagement in the project. Group 2 participated only in the pilot evaluation workshop. Three patients were included in Group 1, two patients in Group 2. Inclusion of patients proved challenging, but the extended collaboration with co-researchers yielded valuable circumstantial insight and resulted in the design of a novel nine-module treatment program. Additionally, the inclusion of two participant groups helped shape the development of an internet platform based on an open-source content management system. Our grouped participation method contributes with several recommendations and reflections of advantages of this approach. Collaboration with co-researchers helped us gain a deeper understanding of the impact of language on self-perception and potential stigma. Prolonged participation led to a higher level of trust and familiarity, which enabled uncovering of issues otherwise hidden.
