The theory we are focused on this week is the Health Belief Model. Please refer to the central concept and the constructs of the Health Belief Model when completing this assignment.
Nearly 80% of adults will have at least one type of the human papillomavirus (HPV) in their lifetime. Some types of HPV may lead to the development of certain types of cancer (ex. cervical cancer, head and neck cancer).
The HPV vaccine can protect against cancers caused by HPV. The CDC recommends that all 11 year-old girls and boys should get two doses of the HPV vaccine.
The pharmaceutical company that makes the HPV vaccine has developed commercials to promote the use of the HPV vaccine. The commercials are targeted towards parents of girls and boys ages 11 to 12.
Watch the video below. After watching the video complete the tasks that follow.
Task 1: Make your Initial Post no later than 11:59pm on Wednesday.
