Guowei Jian

Using prospect theory and the extended parallel process model, this study examined the effect of gain/loss message framing on perceptions of severity, susceptibility, response efficacy, and self efficacy (derived from the extended parallel process model), as well as perception of message effectiveness and behavioral intention in a community based Latino American sample. Results indicated no significant differences between a gain- and loss-frame for any of the outcome variables. In addition, message effectiveness, susceptibility, and response efficacy were the best predictors of intention to engage in early testing behavior.


Lifestyle Drugs And The Neoliberal Family, Kristin Swenson Feb 2016

Lifestyle Drugs And The Neoliberal Family, Kristin Swenson

Kristin Swenson

Since 1997, advertisements for lifestyle drugs have saturated the U.S. airwaves, print media, and the Internet. Viewers are asked to see their children’s difficulty in school as attention deficit disorder, their worry as anxiety, and their flagging sex life as dysfunction. And for each disorder, there is a corresponding pharmaceutical solution. Through the lens of these advertisements, Lifestyle Drugs and the Neoliberal Family unpacks our contemporary obsession with obtaining easy solutions for difficult problems. The ads’ discourse illuminates the experience of living within a society increasingly affected by the policies of neoliberalism, one that requires us to invest ...

Vitamin D An Examination Of Physician And Patient Management Of Health And Uncertainty, Keisa Bennett, Brandi Frisby, Laura Young, Deborah Murray

Laura Young

Vitamin D has been a topic of much research interest and controversy, and evidence is mixed concerning its preventive effects and health benefits. The purpose of our study was to explore the decision-making strategies used by both primary care providers and community members surrounding vitamin D in relation to uncertainty management theory. We conducted semistructured interviews with primary care providers (n = 7) and focus groups with community members (n = 89), and transcribed and coded using the constant comparative method. Themes for providers included awareness, uncertainty, patient role, responsibility, skepticism, uncertainty management, and evolving perceptions. Community member focus group themes included ...

Mother–Daughter Communication About Sex: The Influence Of Authoritative Parenting Style, Michelle Campo, Natasha Askelson, Sandi Smith Jun 2012

Mother–Daughter Communication About Sex: The Influence Of Authoritative Parenting Style, Michelle Campo, Natasha Askelson, Sandi Smith

Michelle L. Campo

Parent–child communication about sex has been shown to delay sexual activity and increase contraceptive and condom use. The influence of authoritative parenting style and mothers' perception of daughters' risk on communication about sex was examined in this study. Mothers in a random sample (n = 283) with daughters aged 9–15 years were mailed surveys asking about communication with their daughters regarding 11 sex-related topics. Multivariate linear regression was used to assess the influence of authoritative parenting style and mothers' perceptions of risk on the number of topics communicated about and age of the daughter at time of communication for ...


Depictions Of Husbands In Miscarriage Accounts, Jennifer Fairchild, Michael Arrington Dec 2011

Depictions Of Husbands In Miscarriage Accounts, Jennifer Fairchild, Michael Arrington

Jennifer Fairchild Ph.D.

Little research has employed social support literature to investigate the support needs of women coping with the loss of a child—or the potential of partners to fulfill those needs. The researchers gathered miscarriage narratives through interviews with 24 women and analyzed the depictions of supportive and unsupportive responses from husbands. Narrators perceived partners either as ideal support sources or as clueless to enact support.


African American Women And Weight Loss: Disregarding Environmental Challenges, Michelle Campo, Teresa Mastin, Natasha Askelson Dec 2011

African American Women And Weight Loss: Disregarding Environmental Challenges, Michelle Campo, Teresa Mastin, Natasha Askelson

Michelle L. Campo

In the United States, almost 80% of African American women are either overweight or obese. In this study, 46 low-income African American women struggling with weight issues participated in structured interviews using a social cognitive theory framework. Participants shared their social cognitive theory related weight loss thoughts and their perceived weight loss obstacles. Results suggest that although participants’ primary weight-related obstacles were environment-based, for example, unsafe environments in which to engage in regular exercise, they more often offered individual-based solutions. The study concludes with a discussion of media advocacy as a tool that can be used to promote environmental solutions ...

Mental Health Informatics, Bruce Levin, Ardis Hanson Oct 2011

Mental Health Informatics, Bruce Levin, Ardis Hanson

Bruce Lubostsky Levin, DrPH, MPH

Health information technology (HIT) promises new possibilities in the delivery of health and mental health care. Although President Bush set a goal to have electronic health records (EHR) for the majority of Americans by 2014, only a quarter of physicians use EHRs in ambulatory settings and five percent of hospitals use computerized physician order entry. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services or CMS has instituted e-prescribing and EHR programs to increase the adoption and use of HIT in the United States. However, many health care and safety net providers feel there are significant gaps in their understanding of how implementation ...

Leadership And Training In Mental Health, Bruce Levin, Ardis Hanson, Sara Kuppin

Bruce Lubostsky Levin, DrPH, MPH

The leadership function within mental health organizations continues to demand that professionals must understand and deal with current multidimensional problems in the managed behavioral health care industry. Furthermore, the responsibility for preparing these professionals rests within universities to better educate these leaders in public health issues and in basic health and mental health administration. In addition, the responsibility also rests with professional societies to better equip leaders within mental health organizations for the diverse challenges that lie ahead in a changing managed behavioral health care environment. This chapter will examine leadership issues in mental health, discussing the obstacles and challenges ...

Public Health Services, David Scott, Bruce Levin, Ardis Hanson Oct 2011

Public Health Services, David Scott, Bruce Levin, Ardis Hanson

Bruce Lubostsky Levin, DrPH, MPH

Unlike clinical care, with its focus on the individual, public health focuses on preventing disease and promoting health in communities based upon a population health analysis. Greater emphasis will be placed upon health promotion and disease prevention, the safety of communities and workers, school-based health programming, and the health of underserved and disadvantaged populations. Public health research has an increased emphasis on behavioral change to prevent risky behaviors and activities that lead to substance abuse, sexually transmitted diseases, and environmental and occupational hazards. These changes have created a broad array of new opportunities for professionals with advanced training in public ...

This landmark report summarized the epidemiology, treatment, financing, and service delivery issues in mental health. While the report focused on the major issues in the organization, financing, and provision of mental health services, there remain additional issues of importance for mental health administrators. This overview section of the text consists of five basic chapters of interest to mental health administrators at all levels of management: critical issues in mental health; an overview of mental health services delivery ...

Introduction: Technology, Organizational Change And Virtual Libraries, Ardis Hanson, Bruce Levin, Susan Heron, Merilyn Burke

Bruce Lubostsky Levin, DrPH, MPH

Change has become a way of life for most organizations in the 21st century. In order to withstand profound change, an organisation must be flexible and incorporate the ability to adapt and respond to its external environment and its many stakeholders. At the same time, in an era of increasing fiscal constraints, new technologies, and an explosion of information, informatics plays an increasingly important and prominent role in society, in knowledge exchange, in communication, and in commerce between organizations. Accordingly, the most remarkable opportunities and challenges have emerged within academic libraries with regard to the incorporation of technology into daily ...
