1. Devizio, Samantha Marie. The attitude-social influence – efficacy theoretical model: application to cancer screening programs among medically underserved men.

Degree: MS, Public Health Sciences, 2013, Penn State University

Introduction: Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men in the United States and affects African Americans at a disproportionate rate. There is controversy surrounding the screening guidelines for prostate cancer, but health care professionals agree on the recommendation that men make an informed decision about getting screened for prostate cancer. Objective: The purpose of this study was to use the results from the Predicting Prostate Cancer Screening Attendance among Underserved African American and White Men Using the Attitude-Social Influence-Efficacy Model study and the Attitude-Social Influence-Efficacy theoretical model to make adaptations to an educational program to improve informed decision making regarding prostate cancer screening among medically underserved men. Methods: The steps of the intervention mapping protocol were used to make adaptations to the Pennsylvania Cancer Education Network’s educational module and survey. These adaptations improved the informed decision making component and reflected the three psychosocial factors (attitude, social influences, self-efficacy) relating to the Attitude-Social-Influence – Efficacy model. Conclusion: The Attitude-Social Influence-Efficacy theoretical model is a useful tool for helping to guide intervention mapping and plan interventions that will ultimately improve participants’ knowledge, attitudes, and self-efficacy about informed decision making and also encourage participants to utilize their significant others, social support, and social contacts to help them with making an informed decision.
