AHRQ My Action Plan
There were implications resulting from this quantitative, evidence-based project that has the potential to improve adherence to healthy lifestyle modifications by using goal setting and action plans to develop habits of healthy behavior.
The inferences from the data demonstrated that using the AHRQ My Action Plan helped the patient focus on a tiny healthy behavior to work on, which increased patient engagement in self-care management and improved blood pressure control. A strength of this project was that completion of the detailed action plan with identification of patient confidence level supported compliance with the healthy behavior.
Follow-up phone calls reinforced the patient’s activity which promoted habit formation over time. Comparison of participants before and after implementation was a valid method to determine a behavior change. There was a positive association between the use of the AHRQ My Action Plan, increased healthy behavior, patient engagement, self-care management, and blood pressure control. The project results reduced cardiovascular risk by an average of 30% and all-cause mortality by 19%.
Some of the weaknesses in the project included the small number of participants and the short data collection period of four weeks. The evidence would have been stronger and more generalizable with a larger number of participants. This was a convenience sample of participants who were available to the urban primary care clinic. If a more random selection of participants had been used, there might have been greater diversity in age and gender related to the sample population, which may influence project results. The data collection period of four weeks did provide enough time to identify trends in blood pressure control related to implementing the AHRQ My Action Plan. Still, the recommendation is to have a longer data collection period for increased reliability.
