Implikacje dla zarządzania zdrowiem publicznym wynikające z wiedzy o alkoholu
Języki publikacji
W artykule przedstawiono wgląd w postawy wobec alkoholu oraz poziom wiedzy Polaków o alkoholu, w celu wyznaczania wstępnych standardów wiedzy o alkoholu i postaw, które mogą być wykorzystywane w decyzjach zarządczych w obszarze zarządzania zdrowiem publicznym oraz edukacji Została wykorzystana warstwowa próba celowa. Przeprowadzono badanie ankietowe bezpośrednie oraz internetowo. Liczebność próby badawczej wynosiła 417 respondentów. Zostały wykorzystane niezależnie T-testy i ANOVA, w celu zrozumienia czy postawy i wiedza różniły się w odniesieniu do kluczowych zmiennych demograficznych. Wyniki przeprowadzonych badań sugerują, że ludzie zarówno w młodym jak i w podeszłym wieku z wykształceniem na poziomie podstawowym mają najniższe poziomy wiedzy w odniesieniu do alkoholu. Nowe podejście do zarządzania zdrowiem publicznym i wyznaczenie nowych strategii edukacji jest bardzo potrzebne w Polsce, ze względu na rosnące spożycie alkoholu na mieszkańca. (abstrakt oryginalny)
This study sought to gain insights into attitudes toward alcohol and the level of alcohol knowledge that people have in Poland to provide an initial benchmark of alcohol knowledge and attitudes to inform managerial decisions in the area of public health management and education. A stratified convenience sample was employed with surveys collected both face to face and online. A sample of 417 respondents was obtained. Independent t-tests and ANOVA were used to understand whether attitudes and knowledge differed according to key demographic variables. The results of this study suggest that young and old people and people with an elementary education have the lowest levels of knowledge relating to alcohol. New public health management and education strategies are called for to reverse rising per capita consumption in Poland. Public health management efforts should focus on people with an elementary education. (original abstract)
