1. 5 Stages of Change Model
This lesson goes over the five stages of change model, explaining who created the model, defining each of the five stages, and explaining the sixth stage that may occur.
2. Behavioral Theory: Thorndike and the Law of Effect
How can outside forces change the way we behave? Why are people's actions shaped by rewards, such as money or good grades, or punishments, such as losing money or feeling pain? This lesson is an introduction to the famous psychologist Thorndike and his foundational research on why consequences of behavior, such as rewards or punishments, affect our future choices.
3. Transtheoretical Model: Definition & Stages of Change

4. Health Belief Model: Definition, Theory, & Examples
This lesson will define the Health Belief Model as it was originally designed. You will also be given examples of how this health theory can be applied in the professional nursing environment.
5. Gathering Health Data: Tools & Examples
Health data is collected through different methods and is used to identify trends. In this lesson, we will learn about how health data is gathered and how it is used.
6. Interpreting Health-Related Data
Nothing is quite as powerful as numbers. In this lesson, you will: learn how to seek out specific healthcare data, access various sample sources, and navigate through a sea of information to find exactly what you are looking for.
7. Drawing Logical Conclusions from Experimental Data
Experimental results are what scientists like to share with each other, but it's important to understand what those data mean. We do this in the final step of the experimental process, when we draw meaningful conclusions from the results we obtained.
