2015-2017

Project:

Personalised home-based physical activity intervention in older adults with heart failure

Aim:

To design and evaluate a home-based physical activity intervention for adults with heart failure in order to improve participation in cardiac rehabilitation. This aim will be achieved through the following three objectives: 1. Define current levels of physical activity and sedentary behaviour and their clinical correlates in heart failure. 2. Co-design a personalised home-based physical activity intervention with patients. 3. Determine the effect of the home-based physical activity intervention
