Course Description: African American (AA) men suffer a disproportionate burden of preventable morbidity and mortality in the United States. AA men are twice as likely to have a stroke and more likely to die from heart disease than Caucasians. This study aimed to use the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) as a framework to understand the attitudes (advantages/disadvantages), SNs (approve/disapprove), and PBC (enablers/barriers) of managing health among AA men. Overall, researchers found that health management behaviors in AA males are multifaceted. Findings from this study may be used to develop targeted interventions that improve health outcomes for AAs.
- Identify the purpose of the study and the methods related to health management perceptions among African American (AA) men as examined in the article.
- Analyze the data by exploring the statistical tests used in conjunction with the discussed findings.
- Integrate the study limitations with the identified areas of future research.
- Generalize the plausibility of applying both advantages and disadvantages regarding attitudes toward health management in AA men.
- Read and understand An Investigation of Health Management Perceptions and Wellness Behaviors in African American Males in Central Texas.
- Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives.
- Consider the factors regarding AA men’s attitudes and enablers/barriers to health management coupled with the statistical findings from the accompanying article.
- Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article.
- Return to the referenced article for any missed questions and/or to better understand the relationship between healthcare perceptions and perceived behavioral control in AA men.
