midwestern health behavior, midwestern health attitudes, midwestern health promotion, risk factors of coronary heart diesease
Perceived health status, perceived healthy lifestyle, value of health, and selected demographics were analyzed for their relationship to. health-promoting behaviors in 143 adults between the ages of 28 and 86. The non-probability sample was obtained from adults who attended nurse-managed cardiac risk screening clinics. The Health Promotion Lifestyle Profile (Walker, Sechrist, and Pender, 1987) was the instrument used to determine participation in health-promotion activities. The Cronbach's alpha for the study was 0.91.
Major findings of this investigation included evidence of a significant relationship between the variables of age, perceived health status and perceived healthy lifestyle and the individual's participation in health-promoting behaviors. These findings have implications for nursing and further research. These findings also support, in part, the relationships proposed in the Health Promotion Model.
I give my permission to the College of Nursing, South Dakota State University, to publish this abstract in a collection of abstracts from master's projects and theses.
