This study was conducted to determine whether adults with a regular primary care provider (PCP) practiced a greater number of health-promoting lifestyle activities than adults who did not have a regular PCP. No published studies were found comparing the health-promoting lifestyle behaviors of adults with PCP and those without, thereby creating a need for this research.
A convenience sample of 32 adult patients of family medicine physician, Dr. Bryan C. Doonan, and 20 adult patients using the Urgent Care at Newport Center walk-in clinic were surveyed utilizing the Health Promotion Lifestyle Profile (HPLP) II. The results of the HPLP II were not significantly higher for either group. However, the adults with a regular PCP showed significantly higher results in health responsibility and physical activity, 2 of the 6 subscales of the HPLP II, than the adult group without a regular PCP.
