Description:
Objectives. This study examines the awareness and self-report knowledge of physical activity (PA) guidelines among adults with rheumatic conditions and evaluates rates of adherence to PA recommendations. Secondary aims include (i) investigating perceived benefits and barriers to exercise and (ii) exploring correlates associated with PA. Methods. This cross-sectional study involved adults attending an outpatient rheumatology clinic completing a questionnaire. Closed- and open-ended questions enquired about awareness and knowledge of PA guidelines, and a single-item self-report measure of PA was included. Perceptions of exercise were assessed using the Exercise Benefits and Barriers Scale. Descriptive statistics described participant characteristics and age-adjusted bivariate analyses explored associations between socio-demographic and condition-related factors and PA.
