This paper presents a model designed for the study of active and passive smoking in military women with children.
Some constructs have been adapted from a transtheoretical model of behavior change.
Transtheoretical model constructs of relevance to this model include (1) stages of behavior change, (2) decisional balance, and (3) self-efficacy.
Other model constructs include (1) personal and situational factors, (2) a mother self-efficacy to reduce the child's smoke exposure. (3) a mother's expectation for the child's smoke exposure, (4) smoke avoidance, (5) nicotine dependence, and (6) social support for quitting smoking.
The occurrence of health problems associated with smoking is the outcome variable.
The results of a study under way at present may support the use of this model and may make data available to substantiate the need for behavior-specific interventions designed to prevent and reduce active and passive smoking among military personnel.
