  1. Effectiveness of a personalized Health Profile for blue-collar workers.

    Article - En anglais

    This article describes a study on the effectiveness of a Health Profile that was offered to blue-collar workers.

    The major goal of the Health Profile was to improve workers'awareness of own health behaviors and their intentions to change unhealthy behaviors.

    The Health Profile consisted of a booklet in A4-format in which tailored information was given on health behaviors.

    A pretest and posttest design (no control group) was used.

    The results showed a significant improvement of awareness of own health behaviors.

    Significant attitudinal changes were also achieved.

    There were no changes in social support and self-efficacy nor was there a change in the intention to change behaviors.

    These results suggest that a personalized Health Profile is a promising means to make workers aware of their personal risk behaviors.
