Community Health Assessment Discussion

In Chapter 4, you will find four factors that contribute to health behavior and health seeking (pg. 38).

Four Factors

Perceived susceptibility

Perceived Severity

Perceived benefits of an action

Perceived barriers to taking that action

Choose one of the four factors and thoroughly discuss, in your own words, including your understanding of its definition and what this factor means in your own health status. Also, give an example of this factor in individual health behavior.

Your responses should follow the conventions of Standard American English (correct grammar, punctuation, etc.). Your writing should be well ordered, logical, and unified, as well as original and insightful. Your work should display superior content, organization, style, and mechanics. Use the APA style for all citations. (Visit http://www.apastyle.org/learn/faqs/index.aspx))

Discussion responses should be on topic, original, and contribute to the quality of the discussion by making frequent informed references to lesson materials. Initial Discussion responses should be around 150 words.
