Teaching and Social Support: Effects on Knowledge, Attitudes, and Behaviors to Prevent Low Back Injuries in Industry.
Daltroy, Lawren H.; And Others
Health Education Quarterly, v20 n1 p43-62 Spr 1993

The complexities of worker social support show that it cannot be relied upon to reinforce educational program goals. (SK)
