Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The preliminary effects of a transtheoretical model-based exercise stage-matched intervention on exercise behavior in sedentary patients with coronary heart disease were examined in this study. This was a pilot randomized, controlled trial. A total of 18 eligible patients with coronary heart disease were recruited and randomized to either a conventional group, a patient-education group, or an exercise stage-matched intervention group. Exercise behavior was measured by exercise stages of change, exercise self-efficacy, exercise decisional balance, and moderate-intensity exercise duration (min/week) at baseline and immediately after the eight week intervention. When compared to baseline, only patients in the exercise stage-matched intervention group demonstrated significant progress in the exercise stages of change, higher exercise self-efficacy, fewer exercise barriers, and longer duration of moderate-intensity exercise after the eight week intervention. A significant difference in the progress in the exercise stages of change was found among the three groups after the eight week intervention. The findings suggest that the transtheoretical model-based exercise stage-matched intervention has potentially-positive effects on motivating sedentary patients with coronary heart disease to engage in exercise.
