Abstract/Summary The treatment of choice for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure therapy (CPAP). However, the effectiveness of this treatment is limited by suboptimal adherence rates. This presentation will outline an ongoing research program aimed at identifying and validating modifiable psychological predictors of CPAP adherence and acceptance. We present a new, inclusive Health Beliefs Model (HBM) of CPAP acceptance and adherence, as well as data supporting the utility of constructs from this model in predicting CPAP adherence before experience with CPAP. We describe the development of measures of Cues to Action and Barriers to Action designed to supplement existing measures of the Health Beliefs Model. In addition, we describe our assessment battery designed to identify individuals who are likely to accept and adherence to CPAP in the longer term. Finally, we outline the development of a theory driven Motivational Interviewing (MI) intervention which utilises measures from the HBM and targets patient’s specific motivations to accept CPAP as a treatment and then continue to adhere to it. We describe nurse training, session content and assessment procedures. Preliminary statistics regarding the outcomes of this trial will also be presented.
