Adequate physical activity is an important aspect in the management of hypertension. Increasing physical activity can potentially be achieved by increasing the level of physical activity self-efficacy (PASE). The purpose of this study is to examine the factors that affect PASE in African American women with hypertension. In the conceptual model of PASE, the four factors of prior related behavior, activity related affect, interpersonal influences and situational influences are directly related to PASE. An extraneous variable is composed of personal factors. All of these factors indirectly influence physical activity through self-efficacy. The endpoint of this model is physical activity. In this nonexperimental study, convenience sampling is being used to recruit African American women with hypertension between the ages of 20 to 70 who are clients at an urban nurse managed clinic. The research is being conducted in two stages. The first stage consists of a pilot study with 10 subjects. The second phase of the research project consists of testing the PASE model. A sample size of 100 subjects is being used to achieve a power of .83 with a 2-tailed alpha=.05. Subjects complete a "PASE Measurement Packet", which contains six instruments. The 'Physical Activity Demographic Profile' (Buchholz, 2000), the 'Physical Activity Health History' (Buchholz, 2000), the 'Social Support and Exercise Survey' (Sallis, 1996), 'The Lifestyle Physical Activity Self-Efficacy Tool' (Buchholz, 2001), the 'Exercise Confidence Survey' (Sallis, 1996), and the 'YALE Physical Activity Survey' (Dipietro, 1993) are the instruments being used. Descriptive statistics will be used to analyze all the variables in the study. Path modeling will be used to test the strength and direction of relationships within the conceptual model of PASE. Studying multiple sub domains of PASE adds a dimension to the existing physical activity self-efficacy research.
