Purpose. Examine the effects of three iterative tailored feedback letters addressing smoking; physical activity; and fruit, vegetable, and fat intake, and test the additional effects of providing feedback on action plans. Design. A tailored, print-based intervention was developed and tested in a randomized control trial with a posttest after 9 months. Setting. A total of 2827 respondents agreed to participate. They were recruited from a random sample of 35,000 addresses obtained through the… Expand
Partner- and planning-based interventions to reduce fat consumption: randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
The impacts of the partner-based manipulations on outcomes were partially mediated by greater perceived social influences, partner support, and enjoyment of avoiding high-fat foods. Expand
Effects of a Web-Based Tailored Multiple-Lifestyle Intervention for Adults: A Two-Year Randomized Controlled Trial Comparing Sequential and Simultaneous Delivery Modes
TLDR
No simple conclusive finding could be drawn about which intervention mode was more effective, and a large number of people were reached at low cost and behavioral change was achieved after 2 years. Expand
Efficacy of a single computer-tailored e-mail for smoking cessation: results after 6 months.
TLDR
The computer-tailored intervention is effective for the Dutch smoking population motivated to quit smoking and into the benefits of (multiple) e-mail-delivered tailored letters with tailoredaction plan feedback over and above tailoring without action plan feedback. Expand
Improving diet, physical activity and other lifestyle behaviours using computer-tailored advice in general practice: a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
A minimal intervention using computer-tailored feedback to address multiple lifestyle behaviours can facilitate change and improve unhealthy behaviours and appears to be an effective and practical tool for population-wide primary prevention. Expand
Print-based self-help interventions for smoking cessation.
TLDR
The effectiveness of different forms of print-based self-help materials, compared with no treatment and with other minimal contact strategies; the effectiveness of adjuncts to print- based self help, such as computer-generated feedback, telephone hotlines and pharmacotherapy; and the effectivenessof approaches tailored to the individual compared with non-tailored materials were determined.

Vitalum study design: RCT evaluating the efficacy of tailored print communication and telephone motivational interviewing on multiple health behaviors
TLDR
The Vitalum study simultaneously evaluates the efficacy of tailored print communication and telephone motivational interviewing, and their combined use for multiple behaviors and people with different motivational stages and education levels and can be used by policymakers to contribute to evidence-based prevention of chronic diseases. Expand
Can a Website-Delivered Computer-Tailored Physical Activity Intervention Be Acceptable, Usable, and Effective for Older People?
TLDR
It is suggested that website-delivered computer-tailored physical activity interventions can be suitable and effective for older aged adults. Expand
Is Action Planning Helpful for Smoking Cessation? Assessing the Effects of Action Planning in a Web-Based Computer-Tailored Intervention
TLDR
The effects of the AP intervention on CA, AP, and execution of plans were encouraging, and the potential for widespread use of web-based interventions means that even small behavioral effects may have an impact on public health. Expand
Efficacy of a Web-Based Computer-Tailored Smoking Prevention Intervention for Dutch Adolescents: Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
The findings of this study suggest that computer-tailored smoking prevention programs are a promising way of preventing smoking initiation among adolescents for at least 6 months, in particular among the age cohort of 14-16 years. Expand
Study protocol of a Dutch smoking cessation e-health program
TLDR
The study results reveal different working mechanisms of multiple tailored smoking cessation interventions and will help to gain more insight into effective strategies to target different subgroups, especially smokers with a lower socio-economic status. Expand

The Impact of Computer-Tailored Feedback and Iterative Feedback on Fat, Fruit, and Vegetable Intake
TLDR
The results confirm that computer-generated individualized feedback can be effective in inducing recommended dietary changes and that iterative feedback can increase the longer term impact of computertailored nutrition education on fat reduction. Expand
Effects of tailoring health messages on physical activity.
TLDR
The results showed that the effects of the tailored feedback were restricted to respondents who had a positive motivation to change at baseline, and that unmotivated respondents were unwilling to read and process the information because they felt 'no need to change'. Expand
Evaluation of a website-delivered computer-tailored intervention for increasing physical activity in the general population.
TLDR
A website-delivered intervention, including computer-tailoring, was able to increase physical activity when compared to a no-intervention control group, indicating that engagement and retention are important challenges in e-health studies. Expand

TLDR
It is indicated that Web-based, computer-tailored nutrition information can have a short-term effect on the determinants of fat, fruit, and vegetable intake. Expand
Effects of an Osteoporosis Prevention Program Incorporating Tailored Educational Materials
TLDR
Limited support for the superiority of tailored vs. nontailored educational interventions was found and neither intervention had an effect on exercise, either alone or in combination. Expand
Effects of a tailored follow-up intervention on health behaviors, beliefs, and attitudes.
TLDR
Mailed computer-tailored health messages and telephone counseling calls favorably modified forward physical activity stage movement but did not appreciably affect any other psychosocial or behavioral outcomes. Expand
Preliminary evaluation of a multicomponent program for nutrition and physical activity change in primary care: PACE+ for adults.
TLDR
Primary care-based, interactive health communication to improve physical activity and dietary behavior is feasible and has promising initial results. Expand
A systematic review of randomized trials on the effectiveness of computer-tailored education on physical activity and dietary behaviors
TLDR
Overall, there seems to be potential for the application of computer tailoring for promoting healthy diets, but more research is needed to test computer-tailored interventions against other state-of-the-art intervention techniques and to identify the mechanisms underlying successful computer Tailoring. Expand
Efficacy of sequential or simultaneous interactive computer-tailored interventions for increasing physical activity and decreasing fat intake
TLDR
For both behaviors, the sequential and simultaneous intervening modes showed to be effective; however, for the fat intake intervention and for the participants who did not meet the recommendation in the physical activity intervention, the simultaneous mode appeared to work better than the sequential mode.

TLDR
The theoretical distinction between action planning and coping planning as introduced in the present study has proven useful in explaining changes in health-related behaviour. Expand
