The relationship of the health belief model and health locus of control concepts to immunization compliance.

 Pacis CR

This study determined the factors which motivate mothers to have their babies immunized and the approriate health education approach to use for mothers using the UP-PGH Medical Center. It determined the prospective usefulness of the Health Belief Model and the Health Locus of Control concepts in relation to compliance to immunization of babies. There was no difference in the level of perception of the compliant and non-compliant mothers with regards to each of three variables of the Health Belief Model, namely: the value of health, effectiveness of immunization and susceptibility of the child to the six diseases. The "effectiveness of immunonization" variable appeared to be the most useful and powerful motivator among the three variables because the results showed a significant relationship between this variable and compliance
