The purpose of this Quasi-experimental study was to evaluate the effects of a program applying the Protection Motivation Theory in promoting the slow progressive behavior in Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) stage 3 patients in community. The sample was CKD stage 3 patients in Phanomdongrak district, Surin province. Of 58 participants were divided into two groups; an experimental group and comparison group which consisted of 29 patients in each group. The research was conducted over a period of 6 weeks, with 2 weeks for the intervention and the other 4 weeks for follow-up period. The data collection was conducted by questionnaire for the pre - test, post- test, and follow-up period. The statistical analysis was performed by using percentages, means, standard deviations, Chi-square tests, independent t-test and repeated measure ANOVA.

         After the intervention, the experimental group had significantly higher mean score of perceived severity, perceived vulnerability, perceived self-efficacy, perceived response efficacy,  and preventive behavior  than before intervention and those  the comparison group (p<.05).

            The findings from this study support that program application of the Protection Motivation Theory could beneficially improve preventive behavior for promoting the slow progressive in CKD stage 3 patients in community, which can be applied to other similar groups of  chronic disease populations.
