Purpose: Since most women will live at least a third of their lives after experiencing menopause, the decision whether or not to adopt HRT for menopause is a choice that affects a significant portion of the population. The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship of attitude towards menopause, knowledge of menopause, social support for HRT, and self-efficacy for HRT with intention to adopt HRT for menopause management. Conceptual Framework: Ajzen's theory of planned behavior was utilized to guide the study. The basic premise of this theory is that performance of a behavior 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, and self-efficacy, and the planned behavior of intention to adopt HRT for menopause. Subjects: The convenience sample of 167 perimenopausal/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, intent to adopt HRT. Descriptive statistics, correlations, and multiple regressions were performed to analyze the data. Results: Self-efficacy R2=.415, (p <.001) was found to predict intention to adopt HRT to a higher degree than the other predictors of support R2=.029, (p < .01) and knowledge R2=.018, (p < 05). The combined influence of all 3 predictors impacted intent to adopt HRT to a greater degree than any of the variables independently, R2=.45, (p < .001). Conclusions: These findings provide evidence for a holistic approach to facilitate the decision-making process concerning HRT adoption. AN: MN030169
