  • Physical activity in persons with diabetes: its relationship with media
           use for health information, socioeconomic status and age
    • Authors: Ko D; Myung E, Moon T, et al.
      Pages: 257 - 267
      Abstract: Although low socio-economic status (SES) persons with diabetes show low levels of physical activity (PA), there is limited knowledge regarding which media is effective in improving their PA. This study aimed to determine the appropriate media for providing PA-related information to persons with diabetes in low SES compared with those in high SES. The data of 770 persons with diabetes in low or high SES were extracted from Multimedia Audience Research Systems 2013, a nationwide cross-sectional study. The relationships among media use for health information (i.e. magazine, television and Internet use), PA, and high and low SES were examined using regression analysis. Additional analysis was conducted to examine whether the above relationships differ by age, which influences the use of media. The relationships of media use for health information with PA levels varied by SES; while television use was associated with increased PA levels, Internet use was associated with decreased PA levels in older, low SES persons with diabetes. The findings indicated that television can be a useful resource to provide PA-related information to low SES persons with diabetes and suggest the significance of choosing appropriate media to provide PA-related information for them.

  • Evaluation of an education program based on the theory of planned behavior
           for salt intake in individuals at risk of hypertension
    • Authors: Rahimdel T; Morowatisharifabad M, Salehi-Abargouei A, et al.
      Pages: 268 - 278
      Abstract: This study was conducted to evaluate an education program based on the theory of planned behavior (TPB) for salt intake in individuals at risk of hypertension. This randomized controlled trial was conducted from February 2017 to December 2017 in Shahediyeh, Yazd Province, Iran. For this purpose, 140 people were selected and assigned to two groups of 70 each, namely, intervention and control. Data were gathered by a self-administered TPB based questionnaire, and also 24-h urinary sodium and potassium levels and systolic and diastolic blood pressure were measured. The intervention group received TPB based on a training package, while the control group received no intervention. Post-test was administered 2 months after completion of the intervention. Independent and paired t-tests, χ2 and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) were used for data analysis. All mean scores on TPB constructs increased significantly except motivation to comply and power of control for intervention group. Average salt intake decreased in intervention group compared with the control group (−4.73 g/day ±0.73 versus −0.24 g/day ±0.94, P < 0.001), but systolic and diastolic blood pressure did not change significantly in intervention group compared with control group. TPB can be implemented along with other approaches in educational programs to reduce salt intake. Code: IRCT201701108803N3.

  • Improving diet quality among adolescents, using health belief model in a
           collaborative learning context: a randomized field trial study
    • Authors: Keshani P; Hossein Kaveh M, Faghih S, et al.
      Pages: 279 - 288
      Abstract: This study aimed to assess the impact of educational intervention, based on health belief model (HBM) and collaborative learning techniques on diet quality in adolescents. In this field trial study, 311 students aged 13–15 years old were included, of which 163 and 148 allocated in the experimental and comparison groups, respectively. They were selected through a stratified random sampling from 16 urban, secondary schools in 4 educational districts of Shiraz, the largest city in southern Iran. The revised children diet quality index was used to assess their diet quality. Using HBM as a framework for targeting determinants of dietary behavior, the intervention was performed in a collaborative learning context during the educational year (2015–16). Constructs of HBM and diet quality were measured before and after the intervention. All HBM’s constructs and knowledge had significantly improved in the experimental group and mean differences were increased after the intervention. Diet quality improved in the experimental group (P < 0.001), which was significantly different from the comparison group (P = 0.001). The findings support the integration of appropriate models/theories into the context of collaborative learning methods to target large number of behavioral determinants, and ultimately increase the effectiveness of the educational interventions amongst adolescents.

  • A community intervention study on patients’ resuscitation and
           defibrillation quality after embedded training in a cardiac rehabilitation
    • Authors: González-Salvado V; Abelairas-Gómez C, Peña-Gil C, et al.
      Pages: 289 - 299
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to examine the effectiveness of a novel cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training method embedded in a cardiac rehabilitation program at enhancing patients’ CPR and defibrillation skills. One hundred and fourteen participants with coronary heart disease enrolled on an exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation program were included. Two groups were randomly allocated to different training programs: CPR-retraining based on hands-on rolling refreshers during the 2-month program (G-CPR, n = 53) versus standard one-time training (G-Stan, n = 61). Resuscitation and defibrillation skills and self-confidence were evaluated at baseline, following brief basic life support (BLS) instruction and after the distinct training programs. Baseline skills were equally poor, improving significantly although irregularly after brief instruction. After the program, CPR quality was further enhanced in G-CPR, which achieved better results regarding correct compressions by depth, rate, hands position and global CPR quality (P < 0.01, all analysis). Defibrillation skills improved similarly after instruction and were reasonably maintained after the program, although delay to shock was reduced in G-CPR. CPR self-confidence was superior in G-CPR (P < 0.001). In conclusion, CPR hands-on rolling refreshers embedded into an exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation program enhanced patients’ CPR and defibrillation skills and self-confidence to perform CPR at 2 months, compared with standard one-time training. This method could help to bring effective training to high-risk populations.

  • Bridging the gap in outreach and compliance with mass drug administration
           for lymphatic filariasis elimination in an endemic district in Kerala,
           India: an intervention research approach
    • Authors: Nandha B; Meenakshy V, Abdul Khader N, et al.
      Pages: 300 - 309
      Abstract: Lymphatic filariasis (LF), a neglected tropical disease is targeted for elimination globally by 2020. National Health Policy of India set the goal by 2017 and annual single-dose mass drug administration (MDA) with anti-filarial drugs is in operation in endemic districts since 2004. Performance and effectiveness of MDA was diverse across the nation and prevalence of infection continues above threshold level in 50% of endemic districts which requires alternative strategies. National programme aims at achieving >65% consumption for transmission control. Post 10 rounds of MDA in an endemic district of Kerala state, a three-arm study identified determinants in gap in outreach and consumption, based on which context-dependent intervention using social group work and networking (SGWN) was implemented and impact assessed. A spill over effect with overall increase in coverage and consumption rates irrespective of arms apparently is due to inclusive improvement in MDA programme whereas, significant relative improvement in intervention arm reflects effectiveness of SGWN strategy. Though reduction in microfilaria prevalence in all arms was observed, it was significant between intervention and comparison arm. This study highlights need for context-dependent communication strategy to improve MDA for accelerating LF elimination by the targeted 2020.

  • A culturally and linguistically salient pilot intervention to promote
           colorectal cancer screening among Latinos receiving care in a Federally
           Qualified Health Center
    • Authors: Gwede C; Sutton S, Chavarria E, et al.
      Pages: 310 - 320
      Abstract: Despite established benefits, colorectal cancer (CRC) screening is underutilized among Latinos/Hispanics. We conducted a pilot 2-arm randomized controlled trial evaluating efficacy of two intervention conditions on CRC screening uptake among Latinos receiving care in community clinics. Participants (N = 76) were aged 50–75, most were foreign-born, preferred to receive their health information in Spanish, and not up-to-date with CRC screening. Participants were randomized to either a culturally linguistically targeted Spanish-language fotonovela booklet and DVD intervention plus fecal immunochemical test [FIT] (the LCARES, Latinos Colorectal Cancer Awareness, Research, Education and Screening intervention group); or a non-targeted intervention that included a standard Spanish-language booklet plus FIT (comparison group). Measures assessed socio-demographic variables, health literacy, CRC screening behavior, awareness and beliefs. Overall, FIT uptake was 87%, exceeding the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable’s goal of 80% by 2018. The LCARES intervention group had higher FIT uptake than did the comparison group (90% versus 83%), albeit not statistically significant (P = 0.379). The LCARES intervention group was associated with greater increases in CRC awareness (P = 0.046) and susceptibility (P = 0.013). In contrast, cancer worry increased more in the comparison group (P = 0.045). Providing educational materials and a FIT kit to Spanish-language preferring Latinos receiving care in community clinics is a promising strategy to bolster CRC screening uptake to meet national targets.

  • Do graphic health warning labels on cigarette packages deter purchases at
           point-of-sale' An experiment with adult smokers
    • Authors: Shadel W; Martino S, Setodji C, et al.
      Pages: 321 - 331
      Abstract: This experiment tested whether the presence of graphic health warning labels on cigarette packages deterred adult smokers from purchasing cigarettes at retail point-of-sale (POS), and whether individual difference variables moderated this relationship. The study was conducted in the RAND StoreLab (RSL), a life-sized replica of a convenience store that was developed to evaluate how changing POS tobacco advertising influences tobacco use outcomes during simulated shopping experiences. Adult smokers (n = 294; 65% female; 59% African-American; 35% White) were assigned randomly to shop in the RSL under one of two experimental conditions: graphic health warning labels present on cigarette packages versus absent on cigarette packages. Cigarette packages in both conditions were displayed on a tobacco power wall, which was located behind the RSL cashier counter. Results revealed that the presence of graphic health warning labels did not influence participants’ purchase of cigarettes as a main effect. However, nicotine dependence acted as a significant moderator of experimental condition. Graphic health warning labels reduced the chances of cigarette purchases for smokers lower in nicotine dependence but had no effect on smokers higher in dependence.

  • Using graphic text-messaging to promote smoking cessation among
           first-generation Chinese and Korean male immigrants
    • Authors: Zhao X; Peterson E, Oh K, et al.
      Pages: 332 - 344
      Abstract: First-generation Chinese and Korean male immigrants in the United States are at high risk for tobacco use. This study pilot-tested a graphic, native-language text-messaging intervention to promote smoking cessation among these groups. First-generation Chinese and Korean male immigrant smokers (N = 71) were recruited from the Washington DC area. Participants were randomly assigned to one of four conditions based on a between-subjects 2 (graphic plus text or text-only messages) × 2 (quitline information or quitting tips) design. The text-messaging intervention included 30 text messages in total and lasted one month. Participants completed an expired air carbon monoxide (CO) assessment and self-reported measures at both baseline and follow-up. Results show that, from baseline to follow-up, participants’ expired air CO levels decreased significantly (P = 0.001). Attitude toward quitting also became more positive (P = 0.028). Compared with text-only messages, graphic text messages produced greater positive changes in quitting attitudes (P = 0.039) and elicited greater fear response (P = 0.005). Compared with quitting tip messages, quitline information resulted in greater regret (P = 0.016) and fear (P = 0.051). These findings suggest that graphic text-messaging can be an effective method to promote smoking cessation among first-generation Chinese and Korean male immigrants.

  • Impact of changes in home smoking bans on tobacco cessation among quitline
    • Authors: Yuan N; Nair U, Crane T, et al.
      Pages: 345 - 355
      Abstract: Home smoking bans may be an effective way to promote tobacco cessation among treatment seeking smokers. Few studies have examined this relationship in a quitline setting. Data were obtained from 14,296 adults who were enrolled in a state quitline between January 2011 and July 2016. This study investigated whether cessation rates varied by changes in home smoking ban implementation between enrollment and 7-month follow-up. The impact of changes in home smoking bans on cessation at follow-up was significantly modified by having other smokers living in the home at follow-up (P < 0.0001). Among callers who did not live with other smokers in the home, the highest odds ratio of 30-day cessation was for callers who reported bans at follow-up only (OR = 10.50, 95%CI: 8.00, 13.70), followed by callers who reported bans at both enrollment and follow-up (OR = 8.02, 95%CI: 6.27, 10.30) and callers who reported bans at enrollment only (OR = 2.06, 95% CI: 1.47, 2.89) compared with callers with no home smoking bans. When callers reported that they lived with other smokers in the home, the effect of home smoking bans on cessation was much smaller. Quitlines should support the implementation of home smoking bans as a part of callers’ goal setting activities to achieve tobacco cessation.
