background image Health Belief Model Question I. In the 1950’s, there was a big push in public health to do screening 
programs for early detection of disease
II. However, turnout was very poor for these programs, especially for 
tuberculosis screening
III. Researchers at the U.S. Public Health Service wanted to find out why so
many people didn’t take advantage of the free of low-cost TB 
screenings
IV. To this end, they conducted a study to identify the factors that 
determined whether a person wanted to be screened for TB
Answer I. The research revealed three factors that determined TB screening 
behavior:
a. Psychological readiness: belief that they had or were at risk of  TB, or would benefit from screening b. Situational influences: belief that they had symptoms, as well as  other people’s opinions of their screening decision c. Environmental conditions: the convenience of screening *** these became the basis of the Health Belief Model Concept I. Theory essence sentence: personal beliefs or perceptions influence 
health behavior
Constructs I. Perceived seriousness II. Perceived susceptibility III. Perceived benefits (of change) IV. Perceived barriers (to change) Perceived Seriousness I. Perception or belief as to the severity of a disease or condition a. Usually based on knowledge, but could be based on culture, past experiences, societal norms, or other factors Modifying 
Variables
Added to Model 
Later
Cues to 
Action
Self-efficacy
background image b. Seriousness could also be in terms of the effects on lifestyle or  livelihood Perceived Susceptibility I. Perception of personal risk for developing or contracting a 
disease/condition based on behavior
a. However, perception of risk is not always explanatory of  behavior, for example: i. People continue to tan even though they believe they are  susceptible to skin cancer Perceived Threat I. Perceived seriousness + perceived susceptibility = perceived threat II. How serious do I think the problem is and what do I think my risk of 
getting it is = my perception of threat
Perceived Benefits (of Change) I. Personal opinion of perception of the value of usefulness of a new 
behavior in decreasing the risk of developing a disease
II. What value might we attach to the following changes of behavior: a. Stopping smoking i. Reduce the risk of lung cancer, be healthier in general,  save money b. Wearing a seatbelt i. Reducing the risk of getting injured c. Eating more fruits and vegetables i. Body is healthier, reduces risk of getting diseases related  to poor diet Perceived Barriers I. Personal opinion of the obstacles in they of adopting a new behavior a. This is the most predictive construct of behavior change i. Benefits of change have to outweigh barriers in order for  change to occur ii. Benefits -> barriers -> change II. Barriers and benefits to daily exercise? a. Barriers: lack of time, equipment, and motivation
b. Benefits: more energy, healthier
III. Barriers and benefits to a vegetarian diet? a. Barriers: not convenient, lack of knowledge, price
b. Benefits: healthier, saves animals
Added Later: Modifying Variables I. Intrapersonal factors that affect health behavior decision making a. Skill, culture, knowledge, education level, past experiences
