Abstract:

Background: Prevention of chronic diseases in the primary care setting requires further understanding. There is a paucity of literature regarding the adult population’s knowledge of the negative effects of sedentary behaviors: a lack of effective interventions to reduce sedentary time.

Purpose: To measure baseline knowledge of primary care adult patients regarding sedentary behaviors and to develop an educational tool for primary care providers to utilize in the office when discussing sedentary behaviors.

Method: This quality improvement (QI) project utilizes an educational program design intended to generate evidence using a baseline needs assessment survey and development of an educational tool to integrate knowledge in the adult family practice patient population for the prevention of chronic diseases through sedentary behaviors.

Conclusions: This project is currently in progress.

Future Implications: An educational tool presented in a patient preferred method of learning will assist providers decrease sedentary behaviors while contributing to the prevention of chronic disease.

Background and Significance: Prevention of chronic diseases in the primary care setting requires further understanding. There is a paucity of literature regarding the adult population’s knowledge of the negative effects of sedentary behaviors: a lack of effective interventions to reduce sedentary time. A need to further explore this gap in understanding and to develop a tool primary care providers may use to integrate knowledge and aide in the reduction of sedentary time; thus preventing chronic diseases.

Purpose and Goal(s): The purpose of this pilot project is twofold; to measure baseline knowledge of primary care adult patients regarding sedentary behaviors and to develop an educational tool for primary care providers to utilize in the office when discussing sedentary behaviors.

Methodology: This quality improvement (QI) project utilizes an educational program design intended to generate evidence using a baseline needs assessment survey and development of an educational tool to integrate knowledge in the adult family practice patient population for the prevention of chronic diseases through sedentary behaviors. A convenience sample of approximately 20-24 participants will be included in the study. Inclusion criteria: York Family Practice patients, adults of either gender between the ages of 19 and 64 years old. English speaking, able to read English, comprehend content written for an eighth grade level, or if not have the services of an interpreter available, and consider themselves to be of good health. A baseline needs assessment survey will identify gaps in patients’ knowledge regarding sedentary behaviors and preferred method of learning prior to developing educational material. The definition of health is the World Health Organizations definition, “ a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity” (WHO, 2017). An educational tool will be developed based on the results of the needs assessment and the preferred method of learning. The educational tool will then be assessed for content validity and usability through a modified Systems Usability Scale (SUS) completed by a team of experts consisting of a Fitness Professional, Physical Therapist, and Nurse Educator. This project was determined QI by both York Hospital and Northeastern University.

Results (in Progress): Descriptive and inferential statistics will be used to analyze data from the questionnaires and survey evaluations. Content analysis will analyze open-ended questions

Implications for Future: Chronic diseases are a national concern threatening health and quality of life as well as incurring considerable expense to the individual. There is a paucity of data regarding the negative health effects of sedentary behaviors and effective interventions. An educational tool presented in a patient preferred method of learning will assist providers decrease sedentary behaviors while contributing to the prevention of chronic disease.
