Experimental: Mobile application
Participants recruited from a self-management course are asked to use (single time) a mobile application to support reflection of personal strengths. The participant borrows an Ipad and uses the application to 1) reflect and identify their strengths by reviewing a list of examples, 2) define personal goals, and 3) link strengths to goals.
Device: Mobile application
Use of a mobile application (on a borrowed device) with following features: 1) strengths reflection and identification, 2) summary of registered strengths, 3) defining goals, and 4) linking strengths to goals.
- Perceived usefulness of the application [ Time Frame: Within a week after using the application ]Study-specific questions on perceived usefulness of the application
- The System Usability Scale [ Time Frame: Within a week after using the application ]This 10 item questionnaire measures usability. Each item has 5 response options with total score ranging from 0 to 100. Higher values represent a better outcome.
- The Positive and Negative Affect Schedule. [ Time Frame: Within a week after using the application ]This scale measures positive and negative affect with two subscales (positive affect and negative affect). Positive affect subscale scores can range from 10-50, with higher scores representing higher levels of positive affect. Negative affect subscale scores can range from 10-50, with lower scores representing lower levels of negative affect.
- The Arthritis Self-efficacy Scale [ Time Frame: Within a week after using the application ]This scale measures self-efficacy with two subscales with 5 response options. The "pain" subscale has 5 items and a score range from 0 to 20. The "other symptoms" subscale has 6 items and a score range from 0 to 24. Higher scores equal higher levels of self-efficacy.
