1. Smith, Edna J. An Intervention to Change Attitudes and Physical Activities of Adult Foster Care Home Workers in Hawaii.

Degree: 2017, Brandman University

ABSTRACT An Intervention to Change Attitudes and Physical Activities of Adult Foster Care Home Workers in Hawaii by Edna J. Smith Insufficient information is available in the medical literature to describe the physical activity habits of adult foster care home workers. Healthcare workers are notorious for lack of self-care. Being a health care worker is a mentally and physically demanding job. It stands to reason that physically fit health care workers are less likely to suffer injury or become ill. This study questions whether attitudes towards physical activity outside the workplace can be influenced the recommended downloading of a smartphone application (smart-phone app). The intervention of the smart phone application provides a free standardized way to manage physical activity. Pre- and post-intervention questionnaires survey attitudes and thoughts towards physical activity. Each participant was provided access to these questionnaires prior to downloading the smart phone application. Approximately six weeks after the initial questionnaires were returned from the study participants, the questionnaires were given again. The data analysis for this study reveals the responses of the 21 study participants to preand post-questionnaires. Interestingly, 19 of the 21 voluntary study participant identified as being of Filipino ethnicity. Filipinos are the second largest ethnic group in Hawaii (Inouye, Matsuura, Li, Castro, & Leake, 2014), where the study took place. Key Words: adult foster care homes, physical activity, exercise, Filipino healthcare workers
