The purpose of this secondary analysis was to determine predictors of older adults' physical activity 6 months following coronary artery bypass surgery (CABS). The original two group longitudinal study used a convenience sample of older adults (N=66)and data were collected before discharge, 6 weeks, and 6 months after surgery. The results of the original work found no difference in physical activity levels 6 months after surgery in older adults' that attended a cardiac rehabilitation program and a group that received usual care. In the present analysis, using the social ecological framework, it was hypothesized that environmental (social support) and personal factors (age, education, activity levels before surgery, self-efficacy, and lower extremity functioning measured at 6 weeks) would explain older adults' physical activity levels 6 months after surgery. Education level, activity levels before surgery, lower extremity functioning, and self-efficacy were significant correlates of older adults' physical activity. Multiple regression revealed that lower extremity functioning measured at 6 weeks and education were the only significant predictors of physical activity. These findings will help nurses identify older adults at risk for reduced physical activity so that interventions to increase activity can be implemented.
