The purpose of the quasi-experimental study using pre-test post-test control group design was to examine the effects of self-protective behavior modification program on self-protective behavior in older adults with chronic disease in urbanized community. A self-protective behavior modification program was developed by applying Health Belief Model (HBM). The sample consisted of 70 older adults with chronic diseases, using the Matching Technique in gender and the type of diseases. Therefore, the demographic characteristics are not different. The sample were equally assigned by simple random sampling to an experimental group and a control group. Participants in the experimental group received intervention for 40 minutes/time in 2 times for 10 weeks. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, and T-test.

The result indicated that after participating in the intervention program, mean score of self-protective behavior for the experimental group was statistically significantly higher than mean score of the control group (t=2.3, p<.05). It could be concluded that this program was useful to increase self-protective behavior of elderly with chronic condition. Suggestion: Community health nurses should be encouraged to use this program in other chronic disease.
