Abstract

Objective. The Theory of Planned Behavior Questionnaire in Physical Activity has been found to be valid and reliable among those in the general population. The primary aim of this study is to understand whether this questionnaire can help health care providers and public health professionals predict intention to engage in physical activity among patients with HIV or AIDS, or both? The secondary aim of this study seeks to expand the questionnaire to measure actual physical activity among this population. Background. There are over 1.1 million Americans living with HIV/AIDS and highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) medication has decreased AIDS-associated mortality and morbidity. However, the side effects of these medications are known to increase various cardiovascular disease risks. Some of these risk factors can be controlled with the implementation of physical activity, especially to control lipid disorders and impaired glucose tolerance, which are both associated with these HAART medications. Various studies have revealed that physical activity has been found to help manage negative effects associated with these medications. Methods. A cross sectional analysis will be conducted with outpatient clinic patients who have been diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. The study design will allow for the exploration of various attitudes, subjective norms, perceived behavioral control, and intention to engage in physical activity, and actual engagement in physical activity. Results. Pending. Conclusion. Pending. Grants. None.
