  37. Unlike the health belief model, the theory of reasoned action, and the theory of planned behavior, the information-motivation-behavioral skills model is a relatively old modeling tool in the behavioral sciences.
  38. Value-expectancy models represent a class of theories that, at their core, assume people will change a behavior it they anticipate the personal benefits derived from the outcome will outweigh any costs incurred through enacting the behavior.
