[Research Presentation] Body piercing has been associated with serious life threatening infections (Armstrong, 1998).áDespite documentation of health risks, body piercing practices continue to grow among people of all ages, occupations and social class (Stuppy, D., Armstrong, M., & Casals-Ariet, C., 1998). The purpose of this study is to investigate a body piercing risk reduction health promotion program and determine individuals perceived conflict decision making and self efficacy concerning potential long term health risks associated with this practice.áA comparative experimental untreated control group design with a pretest and posttest measures will be utilized.áNola Pender's Health Promotion Model will provide the theoretical framework for this research.áSeventy women between the ages of 18 and 45 with or without body piercing will be conveniently sampled from two rural West Texas women's health clinics and assigned to an experimental group or control group.áBody piercing education, including risks associated with piercing will be provided to the experimental group. The Decisional Conflict Scale will be utilized to elicit information concerning the individuals:á1) uncertainty in making a choice, 2) lack of information and 3) perceived effective decision making (O'Connor, 1995).áThe General Self-Efficacy Scale (GSE) will be utilized to assess perceived self-efficacy to predict coping with stressful decision making (Jerusalem & Schwarzer, 1979).á It is hypothesized women living in rural West Texas completing a Body Piercing Risk Reduction Health Promotion Program on adverse effects associated with body piercing will have lower scores on the Decisional Conflict Scale and higher scores on the General Self-Efficacy Scale as opposed to women not receiving a Body Piercing Risk Reduction Health Promotion Program.áááááááááááá áá
