Purpose: Sedentary lifestyle is a leading cause of morbidity and
premature mortality. The study purpose was to compare the effectiveness of
theory-based tailored newsletters and generic newsletters in increasing
participation in moderate intensity activity, stretching and strengthening
exercises (based on Healthy People 2010 guidelines) over 12 months among
midlife and older rural women. Conceptual Framework: The intervention was
framed within the Health Promotion Model (Pender, 1996), with tailored
newsletter messages based on women's level of physical activity,
identified goals, perceived self-efficacy, benefits, barriers, and
interpersonal support for physical activity. Subjects: 220 rural women
aged 50-69. Methods: Experimental comparison group design. Women were
recruited via random digit dialing from rural areas in a Midwestern state.
Nurses individually supervised women at 3-month intervals in completing
computerized established reliable and valid measures of activity and
activity determinants and assessed biomarkers. Activity measures included
behavioral self-report (7-Day Activity Recall) and biomarkers:
cardiorespiratory fitness (V02max estimated from Rockport Walking Fitness
Test), flexibility (sit and reach test) and lower body strength (timed
chair stands). Newsletters were mailed biweekly during months1-6 and
monthly during months 7-12. Tailored newsletters included individualized
messages based upon specific data from women's periodic assessments;
generic newsletters included more general messages. Results and
Conclusions: Repeated measures ANOVAs found significant (p < .001) time
effects (baseline, 6 & 12 months) for all activity measures and time x
group interactions for lower body strength, favoring the tailored group.
Planned comparisons then revealed significant improvements in all measures
from baseline to 6 months and baseline to 12 months for both groups,
except that weekly moderate intensity activity minutes increased only in
the tailored group at 12 months. Percentage of change will be reported.
Both tailored and generic newsletters can influence midlife and older
rural women to increase physical activity. Funded by NINR Grant No. R01
NR04861.
