Title A review of health behaviour theories: how useful are these for developing interventions to promote long-term medication adherence for TB and HIV/AIDS? Summarize how each theory is applied to practice

In this article the first theory is Theory of reasoned action. Theory of reasoned action (TRA) is said to be two factors that determine an intention: attitudes and norms. A person opinion of a behavior being positive or negative. With this theory the applied practice seen is said to exist from the study of TB and HIV/AIDS. The applied to practice here is said to be of a technique that exams social relevant behaviors and finds that its under volitional control with a person’s deliberateness to perform a certain behavior being both

14). Third, the next theory is Health Belief Model. This model (HBM) is said to attempt and explain health behaviors. The author said the applied of practice used here is the health behavior change or seriousness of, and suspectibility to, a disease influence a person’s percievived threat of the disease. Benefits and barriers influence perception of effective health behaviour. Last, Theory of planned behavior is defined as our perception of our ability to peform and action. In this research this theory is perceived as an extension of self-efficacy. The part of the section that discusses this theory said that the applied of practice used is social cognitive theory learning factors of personal determinants, behavioral determinants, and environmental determinants. TPB have found varied resuls regarding the effectiveness of the theory’s components. Self-efficacy (ability to peform an action) is the best way to use this theory because it shows the best way to learn and how we can peform actions. For an example exercising. Do I have confidence in my ability to get up and exercise, …show more content…
Next, a gap of time between assessment of behaviour intention and the actual behaviour being assessed of the intention of an individual might change. These limitations from TRA and TPB are predictive models that predict an individual’s action based on certain criteria. Third, health behavior model (HBM) limitations are that it is has a low predictive capacity of HBM variables already used with small individual variables. Second, no clear rules of combination formulated between individual variables. Transtheoretical model limitations are it focues on external influences of behavior. Last it uses a cognitive model which may be limited and it has no end

    In practice, the best evidence is used as a guide to clinical decision in the domain of best evidence. The other domain in EBP application is the clinical expertise domain, in which the clinical expert in the health care uses the best evidence in diagnosing and treating the patient’s problems. The last domain is the client domain, in which the unique preferences brought up by the patient, the concerns and expectations in the health care setting inform the decision making process. These three domains form the three pillars of evidence-based practice.

    This study will be guided by the Health Belief Model (HBM). The HBM emphasis on how to predict health behaviour through consideration of the individual’s perceptions and attitudes an individual may have towards disease and negative outcomes of certain actions. The main construct of the model are perceived susceptibility, perceived seriousness, perceived barriers and perceived benefits (Janz & Becker, 1984). Any of these perceptions individually or in combination can be used to explain an individual’s health behavior. Recently, other constructs have been added to the HBM, thus the model now include self-efficacy cues to action and motivating factors (I. M. Rosenstock, Strecher, & Becker, 1988).…

    Epidemiology is used to search for factors and causes that impact the incidents of health-related events such as diseases, syndromes, and injuries. Epidemiology tries to provide the answers on why and how by comparing groups with different rates of disease existence and with differences in demographic characteristics, genetic and so-called potential risk factors. Epidemiologic findings provide satisfactory evidence that helps direct effective public health control and prevention measures. Public Health is the science of preventing disease and focuses on the improvement of the health of all people through preventive measures. Epidemiology is the science that studies the patterns, causes, and effects of health and disease conditions in defined…

    The main objective of this surveillance system is to assess the status of STIs in Summerville and identify the magnitude, distribution, changes in agents in the cities of Summerville County. The other objective is to provide a basis through which we can prioritize clinical and educational resources in the STI Surveillance system to ultimately plan public health action and resources. The surveillance system should include a clear case definition for the STIs. The case definition should be distinct for each of the STIs measured in the surveillance (i.e. Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, and HIV) and should include clinical manifestations and laboratory confirmation.…

    On the basis of the theoretical approaches (from sociology and social psychology areas) and health (health care) models presented in Chapter 1“Health and Illness. Sociological and Social-psychological approaches” I managed to reveal some major ideas. As evaluative concepts, health and illness can be largely viewed as ways and mecha-nisms in which a certain population perceived health upon specific value system, cultural as-pects, social norms and attitudes of this population. On the other hand, a scientific approach cannot ignore objective evidences on health, based on measurable indicators of diseases status. There I contoured several conclusions regarding health and illness as social and psy-chosocial phenomena, in the light of theories…

    Each specific heath behavior is determined by an individual’s perception regarding the severity of the problem as well as the likelihood that they will suffer ill effects from the behavior. Moreover, they balance the perceived benefits of making a change in their behavior while appraising the barriers or costs of action change. The value gained from the benefits of behavior change (reducing risk of health problem) must outweigh any potential costs of undergoing the behavior change. Finally, individuals’ readiness to change can be pushed forward by various cues to action and success in change of behavior is determined by one’s self-efficacy to change. Health Belief Model can be applied to preventative health behaviors such as diet and increased exercise, decreased substance abuse, among other behavioral changes.…

    The approach to recovery requires mental health services to develop resources that represent not only their own resources, but the developed resources of people with mental illness and their communities. Recovery can impact people when they take an active role to improving their lives, (O’Hagan 2003). Seymour (n.d) also suggests that consumers of mental health and their families can expect agencies to operate in a way that enables support towards recovery to maintain their well being, so that consumers can participate in society, preventing stigma, paving a way to recognition of acceptance and social inclusion. In reference to Gale and Marshall-Lucette (2012) there is evidence to suggest that stigma has a significant impact on consumers of…

    Culture and health have a significant relationship. The way in which a culture answers the questions: what is health, what is illness, and what is treatment, will determine the ethnomedical approach defined by the culture. It is important as members of the separate ethnomedical system, biomedicine, to find the answers to these questions when first looking to solve a health issue in another culture. Then, it is vital to incorporate the identified health system in determining the best approach for the health issue. This paper will look at the health issue of a target population, the cultural factors that affect the illness, and propose programs that incorporate these cultural factors into the program design.…
