Recommendation details

Recommendation ID: CG147/3
Question: Patient attitudes and beliefs about peripheral arterial disease:- What is the effect of people's attitudes and beliefs about their peripheral arterial disease on the management and outcome of their condition?
Page: 17
Any explanatory
notes (if applicable):
Why this is important:- The evidence reviewed suggested that, among people with peripheral arterial disease, there is a lack of understanding of the causes of the disease, a lack of belief that lifestyle interventions will have a positive impact on disease outcomes, and unrealistic expectations of the outcome of surgical interventions. Much of the research has been conducted on the subpopulation of people with peripheral arterial disease who have been referred for surgical intervention, but little evidence is available for the majority of people diagnosed with peripheral arterial disease in a primary care setting. Research is required to further investigate attitudes and beliefs in relation to peripheral arterial disease, interventions that might influence these and how these may have an impact on behavioural changes in relation to risk factors for peripheral arterial disease, attitudes to intervention and clinical outcomes.
