About

The purpose of this pilot study is to develop an intervention, based on empirical evidence and health-related behavioral change theory, to enhance motivation for engaging in fall-reducing physical activities.

Full description

The intervention being developed, Ready~Steady, combines 3 components; a) interpersonal motivation, b) intrapersonal motivation, and c) physical activity. Theoretical concepts from the wellness motivation theory are (a) translated into intervention strategies; and (b) operationalized as variables to form a basis for evaluating this intervention. The overall objective is to advance the development of Ready~Steady by assessing the impact of its motivation components.
