Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This report presents findings from the Knowledge, Attitudes and Motivations to health (KAM) module included within the 2008 and 2009 Scottish Health Survey (SHeS). The KAM module is the successor to the Health Education Population Survey, which ran in two waves annually between 1996 and 2007 (with the exception of three waves which were suspended in 1999-2000) and was intended to monitor progress in the process of achieving change in health behaviours through a health education approach. The KAM module is embedded within SHeS so can draw on a much wider pool of information about health-related behaviours, experiences and characteristics expanding the possibility for analysis and for a robust examination of the links between knowledge, attitudes, motivations and actual behaviour.
