dc.description.abstract Prior to performing a behavior to improve health, the person must formulate an intention, a mental construct comprised of an ordered series of actions, designed specifically to complete a desired outcome. An examination of the concept of intention and its ability to predict health behavior is examined within the Theory of Planned Behavior. The implementation intention process is also explored, a method that can be used to strengthen the relationship between intention and behavior performance. Finally, implications for nursing practice and areas for further study are discussed en_US
