Investigator: Alex Chin, MS
Sponsor: Global Health Sciences Education

Location(s): United States


This systematic review aims to review the characteristics and psychosocial constructs on intentions to comply with emergency public health measures. It will examine compliance with public health measures in vulnerable populations. The review aims to review knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, subjective norms, risk perception, hazard anxiety, self-efficacy, response efficacy, outcome expectancy, trust in authorities, sense of community, and community resilience on motivations to comply with emergency public health measures during a potentially lethal epidemic. Upon completion, the review could guide the future development of public health campaigns dedicated to improving population compliance with future infectious disease outbreaks. (San Francisco, CA)
