Abstract: Despite advances in heart failure HF, mortality rates remain high and the affected population continues to grow. Improvement in symptomology, and quality of life is noted when exercise is included in the treatment plan. Despite this, exercise adherence is a challenge for people with HF. To understand the factors that drive exercise, this study examined the utility of the theory of planned behaviour TPB.Eighty-one participants completed a questionnaire at: baseline to establish demographic and TPB construct data; and, 3 months to assess exercise.Hierarchical regression analyses determined that a attitude, subjective norm and perceived behavioural control PBC accounted for 20% of the variance in exercise intention with PBC making the only significant contribution; b intention explained 26% of the variance in exercise at baseline; and, c intention was a significant contributor to exercise at 3 months.The TPB may inform interventions for HF which may translate into an improved future for those affected.
