Changing patient adherence to long-term exercise following cardiac events has been challenging. In this pilot study the effectiveness of a new intervention to enhance long-term exercise following cardiac rehabilitation was tested. A convenience sample of 16 subjects (8 men and 8 women) were recruited from a cardiac rehabilitation program (CRP); 8 subjects received the CHANGE intervention and 8 subjects were matched as the control group. The CHANGE intervention, based on Ewart's Problem-solving Model of health behavior change, consisted of 6 nurse-led sessions held during the final four weeks of CRP and 1 and 2 months after CRP. Exercise was measured for 3 months following CRP using heart rate monitors and activity diaries. Results showed subjects in the intervention group had nearly twice the minutes of exercise (1000 and 589 minutes respectively) and had significantly longer exercise sessions than the control group (46 and 36 minutes respectively; p<.01). The intervention group had a greater number of exercise sessions per subject and had a significantly higher number of minutes of exercise within target heart rate zones than the control group (p<.01). Given these promising results, the CHANGE intervention is being tested in a randomized clinical trial involving 280 patients.
