Development of a Quantitative Measure of Community Readiness to Change for Health and Wellness
Objective: Recruiting community involvement in public health interventions is often met with varying degrees of success. Attitudes, resources, and leadership all impact a community’s readiness to effect change. Assessing community readiness for change is vital to successful adoption of any health or wellness initiative. Past efforts in measuring community readiness have been largely limited. This study’s objective is to develop an instrument capable of measuring the attitudes and ability of a college campus community towards adopting change in the realm of health and wellness.
