Purposes/Aims: Osteoporosis affects more than 10 million people, and an additional 18 million have low bone density or osteopenia. Eighty percent are women. Most research focuses on post-menopausal women. Few women are tested for bone density before menopause, and are unaware of their bone health despite the rapid perimenopausal decline. Empiric data are needed to learn what motivates perimenopausal women to determine bone health and if bone health test results would influence positive behavioral changes leading to improved bone health.

Theoretical Framework: This model was created to conceptualize the process of bone health determination for the individual. It is based on the conceptual framework of Pender's Health Promotion Model and incorporates Ajzen's Theory of Planned Behavior.

Internal Consistency: This model is newly formulated and has not been tested. Each model construct can be represented by measurable variables. The constructs can serve as dependent variables to test for consistency in relation to Static Attributes (ethnicity or age) and Dynamic Attributes (smoking or sedentary lifestyle). Starting points into the model will vary depending on the focus of the study. For example, bone health testing can be studied to determine if it positively affects the behavior of sedentary lifestyle.

Implications for Nursing: Preventing osteoporosis is an important area of nursing science. Nurses offer health promotion education, thus a broader understanding of factors that motivate women is needed to develop interventions that reduce the current time delay before bone health is determined. The high cost of osteoporosis care is a significant burden on individuals, families, and society. The Model of Women's Decisions to Determine and Affect Bone Health may serve as a framework for research projects; influence health policy and clinical screening guidelines; and impact nursing education and practice interventions.
