Abstract Supporting brief intervention advice for physical activityB. Johnson, Public Health WalesIntroductionBrief interventions are effective in supporting behaviour change in primary care 1. However, primary care professionals require specific knowledge to optimise their limited time within consultations, when promoting physical activity.Hypothesis Providing structured information to Primary Care professionals increases the likelihood of subsequent brief intervention.MethodsPrimary care professionals in Wales have had access to a web-based physical activity toolkit since 2013. Summaries of evidence relating the benefits of physical activity to different diseases are presented along with brief principles of motivational interviewing and links to further reading and resources. The toolkit has been promoted via lectures, newsletters and handouts over the last 4 years. In 2015 a targeted handout was given to delegates at the cardiology network lectures in Wales, highlighting the benefits of cardiac rehabilitation. ResultsData from the 2016 National Audit of Cardiac Rehabilitation 2 showed a 17% increase in the uptake of cardiac rehabilitation in Wales; far higher than the neighbouring countries of England and N.Ireland. An association between the enhanced education of professionals and the uptake of cardiac rehabilitation is difficult to prove due to the multiplicity of factors. Conclusion:<\b>
The evidence behind brief interventions, their place in modern practice and their effectiveness will be explored in the study.ReferencesNational Institute for Clinical and Health Effectiveness (NICE), 2014 - Behaviour change: individual approaches - Public health guideline [PH49] Published date: January 2014National Audit of Cardiac Rehabilitation (NACR) The 2016 report
