Abstract:
This study investigated the variables influencing community cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) course participation. Forty-seven adults, male and female, participated in a descriptive study. Three questionnaires were given to participants of two community CPR courses: the Cues to Action questionnaire, the Health Belief Model in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation questionnaire, and the Health Self-Determinism Index. The results indicated positive relationships between an individual's perceived susceptibility of others and perceived benefits in CPR course participation and utilization, and between cues to action and intrinsic motivations, specifically health judgments. The results also demonstrated an expected negative correlation between perceived benefits and perceived barriers; i.e., the benefits outweighed the barriers to CPR course participation and utilization. The results are all marketable concepts which can be utilized in promoting CPR course utilization and participation.
