Physical activity is one reflection of health and well-being. Research has supported the importance and safety of exercise for persons with heart failure (HF) and transplant (TX). The Transtheoretical Model (TTM) of Change has been used to predict exercise behavior in healthy people but little is known related to persons with HF. This pilot study examined whether the TTM Stage of Change and available self care resources predicted the self reported activity level in a convenience sample of 58 (39 HF, 19 TX). The stage of exercise was determined by the short-form (TTM) Exercise Questionnaire. The Self Care Resource Inventory was used to measure internal and external resources. The Human Activity Profile measured activity. Results of regression analysis demonstrated that 33% of the variance in activity was explained by these predictors. TTM Stage of Change was significantly related to activity (r=.51, p=.0001). Internal resources were significantly related to the stage of change (r=.29, p=.04). Additional analyses were performed to examine the relationship of selected variables with the specific stages of change. Results of this study warrant further examination of the application of the TTM Stages of Change for this population.
