1.1 Introduction: For decades, the HBM has been one of the most widely used conceptual frameworks in health behavior. The HBM has been used both to explain change and maintenance of health -related behaviors and as guiding framework for health behavior intervention. The HBM has been expanded, broken down into component, compared to other framework, and analyzed using a wide array of multivariate analytic technique. More research has been conducted to specify measure of health believe model and relationship between these believe Bandura, 1977. The Health Belief Model HBM is a prime example of value-expectancy theory, which prior to 1984, was not regularly used in explaining screening behaviors. In more recent years, however, it has gained …show more content…
At least part of its increased popularity may be attributable to an array of research competed by Champion, 1984 and her development of an instrument (and subsequent others) to measure HBM concepts in relation to breast cancer screening: breast self-examination Champion & Miller, 1992 and mammography Champion, 1999. Initially developed in the 1950s by social psychologists in the U.S. Public Health Service, HBM has since evolved gradually in response to practical programmatic concerns Becker, 1974; Janz & Becker, 1984;Kirscht, 19974; & Rosenstock 1974. The key concepts of HBM include perceived susceptibility, perceived severity, perceived benefits, perceived barriers, cues to action, and self efficacy added by Bandura in 1977.The HBM has been used in several studies as a theoretical framework to study BSE another breast cancer detection behaviors Barron, Houfek, & Foxall, 1997; Champion, 1984;1999; Hoeman & Ku, 1996. It has also been utilized to explore culturally relevant differences associated with screening behaviors Cohen & Azaiza, 2005. Because of its long record of use in several studies exploring health behaviors in general, and cancer screening behaviors, specifically, this model served as the ideal theoretical foundation on which the present study was based (Kendara, 2011). Breast cancer is one of leading causes of death among women in Sudan; also …show more content…

Women attaining lower incomes are more likely to experience the worst outcomes when they are diagnosed with breast cancer. Hence, studies have demonstrated that African American women are 40% to 70% risk of being diagnosed with stage 4
The Healthy People 2020 initiative gives 10-year national objectives for improving the health of all Americans. These objectives are to be met by the year 2020 (healthy people reference). The vision of this health initiative is to help create a society where people live long and healthy lives.

According to Document B, "Waters receded but Nile high enough to fill irrigation canals: crops planted and tended. " With the predictable flooding patterns they were able to make a farming schedule. So they could make the most crops. The river influenced their seasons
Another issue that may arise, is the cost of these screenings, and how long it will take to see claims go down. Employers would need to pay for these screenings, and they may not see the benefit for quite some time. The goal of this essay is to persuade people to become educated about their health, and to take action to lead a healthier lifestyle.

Women were deprived of education two and half centuries ago and even today, mainly due to the social, cultural and religious norms. The social issue is the one of the factor which affect girl child
Health Models: Biopsychosocial vs. Biomedical Several factors influence the way in which individual’s view health, such as culture, beliefs, and age. Health can be a very diverse topic for many, with varying views on what constitutes being healthy, how one should be treated to regain health, and how health problems should be approached. Typically, when one is feeling ill, they will visit a doctor. The way in which the doctor will approach the patient and the problems that they have is strongly influenced by the health model that they identify the most with (Engel, 1980).
Among young adult vaccine naïve female cancer survivors aged 18-26, 58.8% had low intentions and 41.2% had high intentions to get vaccinated. Univariate analyses indicated no differences between cancer/no cancer groups on considered risk factors. Among all participants, multivariate logistic regression analyses found vaccine intentions were associated with household income, expected future sexual activity, health beliefs, social influences, race/ethnicity, HPV knowledge, and physician recommendation, while increased perceived barriers associated with a decreased likelihood of initiation (all Ps < .05). Among those having initiated, risk factors for low intentions included barriers to vaccination and having HPV knowledge (all Ps <
Obesity is a precursor to many diseases such as heart disease, hypertension, heart attack, cancer and stroke, which are the primary causes of disability and death in the country. It is imperative that we take a stand to decrease the instance of obesity. The best way to lessen the prominence is to educate people from a young age about good eating habits and the importance of exercise in our daily lives. Prevention, not treatment of illness and disease should be the number one goal. According to the research, Americans are more likely to listen and act on education surrounding their health when it comes from a healthcare provider who is not overweight.
I strongly value my health and believe that health is our greatest form of wealth. When one lives a healthy lifestyle, it means more opportunities to explore the world, build families, achieving anything the heart desires and conquering personal goals. The behavior change philosophy fits my personal philosophy of health education the most because it involves goal setting, behavioral contracts and self-monitoring to help foster the modification of an unhealthy habit. The behavior change philosophy is very important because change is a process, not an event. Self-efficacy and motivation are key factors in successful behavior changes.
When dealing with a specific method, there always has to be a clear theory that goes along with it. The Health Belief Model is the most used theory for health education and health promotion (Hayden, 2014). Hence is why we chose this theory to based off our program on. The concept focused mostly on the theory that health behavior is determined by personal beliefs or perceptions of a certain disease. Currently, there are seven constructs that are used in this model: Perceived Susceptibility, Perceived Severity, Perceived Benefits, Perceived Barriers, Cues to Action, Self Efficacy and Time Frame.
In a medical article, Baeyens informs doctors that parents and children need to become educated on the vaccination benefits because the tendency of unvaccinated individuals to be diagnosed with a preventable disease is high. The reason for people not getting vaccinated is the lack of communication between the public health and social workers about the benefits. Baeyens states that, “Many of the reasons... for not getting vaccinated are based upon ignorance of the true facts...or unfounded fears.” People are not getting vaccinated because they are not aware of the potential risks or benefits that they pose. Communication between these people and the health care services would provide information about immunization which could lead to more people accepting it.
The core assumptions of the Health Belief Model (HBM) are based on the premise that a person will develop a health behavior and is willing to take action to avoid the occurrence of the disease. Furthermore, the person needs to believe that they have the possibility of developing the disease, that they can avoid the disease, that the cost of the change outweighs the benefit and that the person can effectively implement the recommended behavior. Furthermore, the major concepts of the HBM are perceived severity, perceived benefit, perceived barriers, cues to action and self-efficacy (de Chesnay and Anderson, 2016, p. 155-156). According to the Common Sense Model (CSM), when a health threat is perceived by the individual, they progress through three stages: (1) mental representations of the health threat; (2) coping actions or behaviors that help the individual cope with the health threat; and (3) how well the coping strategies manage the
The health seeking behaviour of a community determines how health services are used and in turn the health outcomes of populations .Factors that determine health behaviour may be physical, socio-economic, cultural or political .Indeed, the utilization of a health care system may depend on educational levels, economic factors, cultural beliefs and practices. Other factors include environmental conditions, socio-demographic factors, knowledge about the facilities, gender issues, political environment, and the health care system itself .Several factors can determine the choice of health care providers that patients use. These include factors associated with the potential providers (such as quality of service and area of expertise) and those that relate to the patients themselves (such as age, education levels, gender, and economic status) .
