Abstract

Self-management plays a vital role in improving health outcomes and reducing
costs in patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD) and associated risk factors.
Based on existing studies, rural residents with CVD and/or risk factors show low
engagement in self-management behaviors. Due to low participation in behavioral intervention trials, the most promising mechanism to promote self-management among rural populations is unknown. In turn, the purpose of this article is to review the evidence that supports strategies to recruit and retain rural patients to participate in behavioral intervention trials aimed to promote self-management of CVD and its risk factors. This review is expected to assist researchers in identifying effective solutions to overcome barriers in the recruitment and retention processes when conducting intervention research studies on the selfmanagement of CVD in rural communities.
