Abstract

The aim of the study was to explore the effects of a smoking prevention education intervention, in terms of the knowledge of tobacco hazards, attitudes toward smoking, life skills, possible use of refusal skills, self-efficacy and smoking intention in the future among vocational high school students.
The subjects were tenth-grade students from two purposively selected schools in Taipei City. The method of the study was quasi-experimental in nature. The total number of valid subject was 172. The study offered six prevention sessions to the subjects in November and December 2003, and in March and April 2004. The data was collected via a self-administrated questionnaire. The baseline survey was conducted a week before the intervention and the follow-up surveys were conducted in May and September 2004.
The main results were presented as follows:
1. Compared with the two control groups, the intervention could significantly increase the knowledge of tobacco hazards of the experimental group in terms of immediate effects.
2. The intervention could significantly increase the Iuxow1cdgs of tobacco Lizards and decease smoking intention in the future among the experimental group compared with the same school control groups in terms of dc]ay effect.
It was suggested that vocational schools should design cur1culum to assist tenth-to eleventh-grade students to resist smoking pressure and to strengthen their anti-smoking beliefs.
