A personalised approach in lifestyle interventions

Outcome data from 70 cardiac patients

  • Effects of lifestyle interventions not uniform in all patients
  • Participants are more active after a lifestyle intervention
  • Behaviour interventions require a personalised approach 

If and to which extent cardiac patients are willing to alter their behaviour is associated with differences in demographic characteristics, clinical symptoms, and psychological factors. Therefore, an individual and personalised approach is necessary to change the lifestyle of cardiac patients. This is concluded by researchers who analysed the behaviour of 36 Dutch and 34 Spanish participants suffering from high blood pressure, heart failure or coronary artery disease that attended a three-month lifestyle intervention programme.
