Introduction: One of the most important problems in childhood was urinary tract infections, which can lead to permanent damage to the health of their kidneys. The purpose of this study was to measure the constructs of the theory of planned behavior regarding the preventive behaviors of urinary tract infection in mothers with a girl under two years of age.
Methods: This is a cross-sectional and analytical study that was carried out on 280 mothers of girls under the age of two years who referred to eight health centers based on the geographical areas of the city and in each center was randomly selected based on the household case number. The data was collected by a researcher-made questionnaire whose validity and reliability were confirmed. The questionnaire included demographic characteristics of the mother, dimensions of the planned behavioral model and maternal duty checklist. Finally, the data were analyzed using SPSS software and Pearson correlation and linear regression tests.
Results: Mean and standard deviation of attitude score (3.87±0.37), subjective norm (4.09±0.49), perceived behavior control (4.32±0.47), behavioral intention (4.59±0.47) performance (2.78±0.58) and knowledge (0.62±0.1) was observed. In regression analysis to predict behavior using the constructs of the theory of planned behavior, knowledge variables and intention to behave as predictive behaviors, predicted a total of 15% (R2=0.16) of behavioral change.
Conclusion: According to the results of the study, recommendation in designing educational interventions, the awareness and structure of behavioral intention should be emphasized as the most important predictor of mothers' behavior.
