Abstract

Background: Rehabilitation is often focused on improving an individual’s physical or functional capabilities after a traumatic injury. However, successful rehabilitation adherence and program completion has shown to have attributes of intrinsic motivation. Intrinsic motivation, as defined by Deci and Ryan (1985), is a learned behavioral trait that is driven by an internal force and produces a rewarding outcome.

Objectives: The purpose of an integrative literature review was to determine which factors influence intrinsic motivation among patients enrolled in rehabilitation programs. Thus, advancing the knowledge of clinicians to explore and utilize its applications with their clients; ultimately aiding them to adherence of their rehabilitation program and lead a greater perceived quality of life.

Method: An integrative literature review was chosen. Databases including CINAHL, PubMed and independently searched scholarly journal articles were used to synthesize relevant data. For this study, eleven primary sources were only used to obtain data for this integrative study. These articles consisted of quantitative and qualitative studies.

Results: Autonomy support, competence, and relatedness were factors that strongly influenced intrinsic motivation among rehabilitation patients. The Self-Determination Theory, as described Deci and Ryan (1985), confirmed the influence these specific factors have upon inducing intrinsic motivation. Upon completion of results, eleven total articles were used for conduction of the study.

Conclusion: By utilizing the Self-Determination Theory as a framework, characteristics of intrinsic motivation can be better understood and applied by clinical experts in a rehabilitative environment. Recent and relevant studies have confirmed the positive impact clinicians have when autonomy support, competence, and relatedness are used for rehabilitation adherence and program completion. Ultimately, clinicians will be able to create an environment in which intrinsic motivation can be induced and patients can successfully complete their rehabilitative goals.

Keywords: Intrinsic motivation, motivational interviewing, chronic illness, rehabilitation, quality of life, healthcare.

Factors that Influence Intrinsic Motivation on Program Completion for Rehabilitative Patients: An Integrative Review of Literature
