situation, and gave him options for when he got out of the hospital. He agreed with me that he needed to quit and would seek treatment. The next week, on my days off, the ambulance got called to the same residence, only this time they were too late. He died because he couldnt change his behaviour. I truely believe he wanted to, but the environment he went back to was not condusive to him quiting. It was very sad. I wish I could have done more.

Developed in the 1950s as a way to explain why medical screenings were not successful. Later uses Of HBM were for patient’s responses to symptoms and compliance with medical treatments. The underlying concept of the original HBM is that health behavior is determined by a person belief or understanding of an illness or disease (Hochbaum, 1958). The HBM consist of four perceptions, perceived seriousness, susceptibility, benefits and barriers. Everyone has different perception of seriousness of disease. What I would consider an illness that takes me out of work to be serious you may think it’s no big deal. Perceived Susceptibility is said to be a motivator to change a person’s health habits, if you see it as a risk it makes you want to prevent further illness, The perceived benefits is the thinking of one to view the value of the new behavior and its usefulness due to it decreasing there risk of disease process. This also contributes to a person getting partaking in secondary prevention methods. Perceived barriers, these are obstacles that the person feels are in their way of a health care change. Personal beliefs play a huge role in the influence on health behavior. We as nurses need to better educate ourselves so we can better educate our patients and encourage lifestyle changes that are need to maintain a healthy balance. We have to look at a person beliefs and how they perceive their lives and ability to change. We need to look at finances; culture, motivation, educational level and past experience in order assist our patients in reaching obtainable goals and maintaining healthy living changes. A person can only change if they feel they can, they need confidence and feel that it’s an important part of their life and make a difference. They need to see the benefits and commit to healthy changes in life.
