3358.0 Research on Protective Factors and Effective Population-Focused Interventions

Monday, November 9, 2009: 2:30 PM
The purpose of this session is to discuss research results from studies on a typology of childhood cancer survivorsí determinants of follow up care, effects of nurse-led home visitation for management of childhood asthma, effects of a motivational interviewing intervention on exercise and diet, and adolescent attitudes, beliefs, and norms about non-use of tobacco products. Application of research findings could enhance ability to tailor interventions based on cultural beliefs, home context, motivational strategies, and affective, cognitive, and motivational determinants.
Session Objectives: 1. Analyze results of research based on stages of change, motivational interviewing, and nurse-led home visitation for contribution to knowledge for future health promotion and health behavior interventions. 2. Evaluate the potential for application of individual, environmental, and parental influences on development of an intervention to enhance protective factors for youth tobacco prevention.
