Abstract:

Session presented on: Friday, July 26, 2013

Purpose: This study was conducted to examine the effect of a Sun Protection Program (SPP) on the sun-protective behaviours of Turkish adolescent.  

Methods: This quasi-experimental study was of pretest – posttest and follow-up control group design. Ninety six students formed the intervention group while 84 students formed the control group in two schools. The data were collected with Sun Protection Scales of Transtheoretical Model and Sun Protection Behaviour Scale.

Results: Of the adolescents participating in the study, 50.3% were girls, with a mean age of 12.10±0.68. There were no statistically significant differences before and after the SPP in knowledge values  (p>.05). The intervention group significantly improved in sun protection and sunscreen use stage of change, compared with the control group at 1 months (p<.05), but no difference 3 months. The sun protection program significantly increased sun protection behaviours and the perception of sun protection behaviour pros, self-efficacy and subscales at 1 months (p<.05). No significant differences existed in all scales between the two groups at 3 months (p>.05).

Conclusion: Sun Protection Programe was effective in increasing sun protection behaviors, the perception of pros and self-efficacy scores, but not found differences knowledge.
