dc.description.abstractObjective: To identify and explore the factors that affect an athlete‟s adherence to a prescribed rehabilitation programme in order to support previous research and enhance adherence to injury rehabilitation programmes. Design: A qualitative study conducting semi-structured interviews to collect in-depth data regarding participants own experiences. Setting: Participants were interviewed in a familiar environment at mutually convenient times. Participants: A purposive sample of six (five male and one female) sport students studying at the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff. Data Analysis: Inductive content analysis to organise raw data into common themes in order to analyse data across cases. Results: Several key personal and situational factors that influence adherence emerged from the data. Conclusion: Rehabilitation adherence is influenced both positively and negatively by a number of different personal and situational variables throughout the rehabilitation process. Implications for Practice: The use of intervention strategies to enhance adherence is beneficial and such strategies include goal setting, imagery, social support and verbal persuasion. Future Research: Future studies may wish to examine the inconsistent methodological issues in previous research in order to allow comparison of results across studies.en_UK
