Abstract:
The purpose of this triangulated study was to determine whether selected components of Pender's Health Promotion Model (1987) related to a health-promoting lifestyle in a sample of adolescent females. Specifically, of the following variables: perceived health status, definition of health, self-efficacy, parental lifestyle profiles, and selected demographics, which combination contributes most to predicting a health-promoting lifestyle in adolescent females in grades 7 through 12? The study addresses the following questions: 1) What is the relationship of maternal and paternal lifestyles to engagement in a health-promoting lifestyle in adolescent females? 2) Does perceived health status, definition of health, self-efficacy, parental lifestyles, or selected demographics best predict a health-promoting lifestyle in adolescent females? A descriptive, correlational survey design was used for this study. The sample consisted of 175 adolescent females and their parents (N-175 sets of parents, or 350 parents). A stratified random sampling frame was used to select the sample of 7th through 12th grade adolescent females on the basis of school and grade attended from the secondary schools in a school district in eastern Nova Scotia. Criteria for eligibility included: female adolescent attending school in grades 7 through 12, and each adolescent had an intact mother-father dyad. Frequency distributions, means, and standard deviations are reported for each of the study instruments. Pearson product moment correlations were performed on the variables perceived health status, definition of health, self-efficacy, maternal health-promoting lifestyle, paternal health-promoting lifestyle, demographic variables and the total health-promoting lifestyle profile of the adolescents and its subscales. Multiple correlation/regression procedures were conducted using the adolescents' scores on the total HPLP and its subscales as the criterion variables.
