Abstract

PURPOSE
This study is to examine the effect of a health promoting education program for middle-aged women.
METHODS
Health promoting education program: The subject group consisted of 116 women between 40 and 60 years of age. Three 12-week sessions consisted of a 90 minute class each week, from March 14th to November 14th, 2003. Pre- and post-education tests were collected after each session. The data was collected using structured questionnaires before and after the education sessions. Data were analyzed employing descriptive statistics, paired t-test with SPSS/PC (10.0 version) program.
RESULTS
There were significant changes in health promoting behavior, but no significant changes in the self-efficacy and the knowledge of health management.
CONCLUSION
This study showed that a health promoting education program has partially positive effects for middle-aged women. Based on this study, a continuous education program through a community health center is needed for middle-aged women's health.
