Factors associated with successful completion of chronic disease self-management program (CDSMP) among Asian participants
Methods. The study aims to identify characteristics of Asian CDSMP participants and investigate factors related to successful workshop completion (i.e., attending 4 or more of the 6 sessions) among this population. Data were analyzed from 104,713 adults collected during a two-year national dissemination of CDSMP. Logistic regression analyses were conducted to identify covariates related to successful workshop completion.
Results. Asian participants accounted for 3.2% (n=3,307, mean age=68 years) of the total CDSMP participants. Approximately 54% of Asian participants reported having at least two chronic conditions. Most Asian participants attended workshops through the aging services network (26%), health care organization (17%), and residential facilities (15%). Asian participants were underrepresented in workshops delivered in rural settings (9%). Successful completion of CDSMP workshops among Asian participants was clearly associated with their number of chronic conditions (i.e., one [OR=1.36, P=0.026], two [OR=1.38, P=0.028], and three or more conditions [OR=1.51, P=0.004]). Successful completion was observed among participants who attended CDSMP workshops through the aging services network (OR=1.42, P=0.001) and in rural settings (OR=1.77, P=0.002) as compared to other delivery settings.
Conclusion. This study is the first large-scale examination of Asian Americans enrolled in CDSMP and highlights participant and delivery characteristics related to intervention dose in this under-studied minority population.
