The purpose of this study was to develop a reliable and valid tool to measure how Thai women take responsibility for their own health during pregnancy. An item pool for the Health Responsibility Scale (HRS) was based upon: 1) The analysis of the health responsibility concept using Walker and Avant's concept analysis method (1995); 2) The analysis of in-depth interview transcript of fourteen participants about their own meanings of health responsibility and health practices during pregnancy. The defined elements were clustered and conceptually matched with the health responsibility in the Pender's health promotion model (1996). Testing of the HRS resulted in an instrument of forty-nine items. Six hundred and eight postpartum adolescents were given the HRS, which shown high reliability with an alpha level of .89. The factor analysis yielded twenty-eight items and explained a total of 43.25% of variance. The four factors are: 1) Seeking of health-related information, 2) Intention to maintain health, 3) Effective use of health services, and 4) Prevention of health hazards. These findings support the HRS as a reliable and valid instrument in measuring pregnant women's health responsibility that can have a significant impact to assist nurses in fostering health promotion behaviors in pregnant women.
