Abstract 

Prior studies about framing with chronic regulatory focus have indicated that a gain-framed message was effective to motivate individuals with promotion focus to perform the health behavior, whereas for those with prevention focus, a loss-framed message was beneficial. However, little research has examined the persuasive effects on the clinical settings. Furthermore, unlike those findings, this study hypothesized that a gain-framed message might be more persuasive to motivate both stroke patients with promotion focus and prevention focus because (1) rehabilitation was non-risky and had certain outcomes and (2) rehabilitation was important to reach the desired goal and fulfill responsibility. The results revealed that the gain-framed message produced a favorable attitude toward the recommended behavior and facilitated long-term behavioral change. This study offered health care providers useful guidelines to design influential messages for target patients to prompt health behavior.

Keywords: Message framing, chronic regulatory focus, prospect theory, regulatory focus theory, stroke, rehabilitation
