Social support

Social support is a major determinant of adherence to exercise in CR (Andrew and Oldridge, 1981; Oldridge, et al., 1992). Thus, an important part of the consultation is to encourage individuals to seek support for their activity plan. For example, family or friends could engage in some activity with the individual or praise them for continuing with an active lifestyle. Alternatively, joining a group exercise programme will provide a supportive environment for some individuals. In addition, the involvement of family and partners can help CR participants gain social support to attend phase III programmes.
