The goal of this phase of the project is to identify the elements of the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) that should be targeted to provide the most influence on older adults' behavior (or other stakeholders) to purchase and wear protective headwear. The investigators also intend to determine the format of communication (social marketing/academic detailing) that is most influential for different key stakeholder groups. The TPB has been useful in understanding behavior change related to exercise and adaptive equipment use (such as grab bars, canes, hip protectors); in understanding how a person's attitudes, subjective/social norms and perceived behavioral control inform the development of intention that leads to behavior change.
