Abstract

There has beer increasing interest in promoting health-enhancing exercise in primary-care services. One popular approach in the U.K. has been generalpractitioner (GP) exercise-referral plans in which mostly sedentary patients are referred by GPs to an exercise program at a local leisure center. Itis not clear, however, how older women assimilate such a referral system into cognitive processes associated with physical activity involvement. Thisinterpretivist study adopted unstructured interviewing and life-story technique to embrace subjectivity and contextuality in an attempt to capture the complex processes and to explore both common and diverse experience. The study explored referred older women's accounts of their past and current experiences of physical activity and their perceptions of what blocks or motivates them to be active. Fifteen newly referred older women (50-80 years old) were interviewed at various points during their prescribed 10-week exercise program. The findings highlight the importance of psychosocial dimensions and informal networks in the: referral processes.
