Abstract:
Comparing Older Male Inmates' and Community-Dwelling Older Men's Health Self-Efficacy, Outcome Expectations, Health Motivation, and Health Behaviors
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International

Co-Authors:Darrell Steffensmeier, PhD
Purpose and Aims: To conduct a pilot study comparing incarcerated older men's and community-dwelling older men's health: motivation, behaviors, and self-efficacy. Theoretical framework: Bandura's Social Cognitive Theory (2004). Methods: A convenience sample of 50 incarcerated older men at a minimum security correctional facility and 25 community-dwelling older men will be obtained. An exploratory survey design is used to investigate older male prisoners' and community-dwelling older men's health: motivation, behaviors, and self-efficacy. Study participants are read the surveys. Inclusion criteria for the older male prisoners are: age > 50; incarcerated; and possibility of transition to the community. Inclusion criterion for the community-dwelling men is age > 50. Exclusion criteria for all participants are: AIDS, chronic renal failure, current chemotherapy or radiation therapy for cancer; or major mental illness, dementia or primary brain damage; or life or death prison sentence. The survey includes portions of the Older Men's Health Program and Screening Inventory (OMHPSI; Loeb, 2003) the Health Promotion Activities of Older Adults Measure (HPAOAM; Padula, 1997), with newly constructed items. The final four items address issues particular to prisoners. Participant responses are transcribed onto scantrons and will be analyzed using SPSS. Descriptive statistics, t-tests, and psychometric analyses will be computed. Results and Conclusions: Pending conclusion of the study. Implications for Advancing the Nursing Research Agenda or Improving Quality of Care: Findings from this study will uncover disparities between the health motivation, health behaviors, and health self-efficacy of older men in prison and older men in the community. Findings will serve as critical pilot data for a larger study aimed at development of a contextually appropriate intervention for increasing the health-promoting behaviors of older men in prison.
