Osteoporosis (OP) has become one of the most common chronic bone diseases that are related to various factors including menopause and aging. As a result, OP and menopausal bone loss pose a huge social and economic burden worldwide. Moreover, studies showed that OP menopausal women have higher levels of kinesiophobia and lower self-efficacy of activity, which even affects their quality of life. The e-health self-management is a behavior modification strategy that is proven effective in the management of diseases. Thus, it is necessary to develop and evaluate an e-Health Osteoporosis Self-Management (eOSM) program based on changes on the kinesiophobia and self-efficacy model and facilitate behavior change in menopausal women with OP. This research will be conducted in three steps. In the first step, a qualitative study with online focus-group approach will be conducted to explore kinesiophobia in OP menopausal women. In the second step, after the factors of kinesiophobia are identified, the eOSM program that focuses on changes in factors of kinesiophobia and self-efficacy model will be developed. In the third step, an experimental design will be applied to allocate patients to either a supervised 4-week eOSM intervention with usual practice or usual practice only by randomized controlled trial. The outcome measures of this study will be conducted at baseline and at 1, 6, and 12 months. The findings of this study would generate an effective eOSM program for health professional to facilitate menopausal women with OP the development of self-care capability and improvement of health-related outcomes.
