Risk Health Behavior
This study which delves into the unhealthy behavior among students of Central Police University and the related factors is conducted on a random sample of 377 students, using a self-prepared structured questionnaire. 372 (98.7%) completed questionnaires were received. Findings are as follows: 1.In terms of the dietary behavior, the overall dietary behaviors of the subjects are fairly good. Subjects having good eating behaviors take breakfast every day and have sufficient intake of water and protein; furthermore, it’s found that few subjects indulge in sugared drinks and dislike milk, fruit and high-fiber foods. The study also reveals that low-grade subjects having better academic performance and prone to internal health locus of control have better dietary behavior; while the subjects that are prone to prepotent external health locus of control have poor dietary behavior. 2.In terms of the exercise behavior, the overall exercise behaviors of the subjects are good. The good exercise behaviors include: wearing proper sportswear, taking care of self and others’ safety while taking exercise, and taking exercise at appropriate sport venues. The study reveals that “Grade” and “Internal Health Locus of Control” are primary variables in prediction of exercise behavior. The low-grade subjects that are prone to internal health locus of control have better exercise behavior. 3.In terms of the stress coping behavior, the subjects manifest fairly good stress coping behavior. The good stress coping behaviors include: enjoying sedentary leisure activities, endeavoring to overcome difficulty in study, and envisioning a meaningful life. However, the subjects, when encountering emotional management problem, seldom seek advice from experts or counselors. The study reveals that female subjects with better academic performance and prone to the internal health locus of control manifest better stress coping behavior; and that subjects that are prone to external chance health locus of control manifest poor stress coping behavior. 4.In terms of the unintentional injury prevention behavior, the subjects manifest fairly good unintentional injury prevention behavior. The good behaviors include: refraining from driving a vehicle or a motorbike under the influence of alcohol vehicles, and wearing a helmet while riding a motorbike; however, the poor behavior found in this study is “riding bicycles without wearing helmets”. The study reveals low-grade female subjects with better academic performance and prone to internal health locus of control manifest better unintentional injury prevention behavior. In terms of suicidal behavior, one-tenth subjects once conceived of suicide, but none of them attempted suicide. Most of the subjects did not seek assistance when conceiving of suicide. 5.Among the subjects, 31.7% of them tried smoking, and 91.1% drank alcohol. Most of the subjects smoked or drank alcohol for the first time at the age of seventeen, and few of them have got into the habit of daily smoking or drinking. The study reveals that high-grade subjects with poor academic performance have high smoking rate. 6.Two-tenths of the subjects have sexual experience. Among them, at least six-tenths use condom throughout the course of sexual intercourse. A few of them do not take protective measures or contraceptive means during the course of sexual intercourse. The study reveals that sex behavior is more common among the male and high-grade subjects. As revealed in the findings of this study, it is suggested to strengthen the inspection of the campus catering service, to frequently organize health promotion related activities by the Health Care Center of the school, to enhance the health related education program, to include diverse health courses into the general education curriculum, to foster the functions of the Student Counseling Center, and to take the heath-related life skills as essentials of student practical training. The findings of this study shall serve as reference for the health promotion programs and the future study and research direction of the Central Police University.
