The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship of attitude towards menopause, knowledge of menopause, social support for HRT, self-efficacy for HRT, and intention on actual adoption of HRT and/or complimentary therapies for menopause management. Conceptual Framework: Ajzen's theory of planned behavior was utilized to guide the current study. The basic premise of this theory is that behavior performance is determined by three interconnecting concepts: attitude, subjective norm, and perceived behavioral control. The current study adapted this theory to examine the relationship between attitude, knowledge, social support, self-efficacy, and intention on actual adoption of HRT and/or complimentary therapies for menopause management. Subjects: The convenience sample of 143 peri-pausal/menopausal women 39 to 58 were recruited from rural women's health clinics in Nebraska and Wyoming. Methods: A prospective design was selected to explore the relationship between predictors and the criterion, adoption of HRT. Descriptive statistics, correlations, and multiple logistical regressions were performed to analyze the data. Results: A simultaneous logistic regression model fit to data from the 81 menopausal women in the sample was significant compared to a constant-only model (chi-square=25.08, p<.0005), with a Negelkerke pseudo-R-squared of .359. Attitude, knowledge, and intention were not significant, but having hot flashes (b=2.165, p=.006, odds ratio=8.712), support for HRT (b=.178, p=.013, odds ratio=1.195), and self-efficacy for HRT (b=-.145, p=.009, odds ratio=.865) were significant predictors of HRT adoption. Using this model, 81.0% of adopters and 65.8% of nonadopters could be correctly classified. Conclusions: These findings provide further evidence for the need of a holistic approach to assist women with the complex decision-making process concerning adoption of HRT for menopause management.
