Investigation of Adult Attitudes Towards Health News

Sprache: EN

Eingesandt von ibrahim kızıl

The aim of this research is to determine the attitudes of adults towards health education news delivered via mass media. The study was conducted on 208 outpatients who voluntarily participated in the research hospital in Kocaeli University Medical Faculty Hospital in April 2017 in accordance with the screening model. As a means of collecting data in the research, "Adults' Health Questionnaire Survey" and "Attitude Scale Towards Health News Given by Mass Media" developed by Akgün (2014) were used. Descriptive statistics and difference statistics were used in the analysis of the data. According to findings from the research, realistic finding, important finding and general attitudes towards health education news delivered by mass media are moderate. As the frequency of using the mass media increases as adults are getting away from their health education needs, the attitude of finding realistic and important health education news delivered by mass media is increasing. As the level of confidence in the mass media used in the health education of adults increases, the attitude of finding realistic and important health education news delivered by mass media is increasing.
