Gingiss, Phyllis Levenson; And Others
American Journal of Health Promotion, v8 n4 p294-301 Mar-Apr 1994
The study described here attempted to operationalize adopter characteristics identified by research and assess their relationship to the adoption and implementation of health innovations in schools. Surveys of second-grade teachers after the introduction of a new health promotion program identified three components of teacher views that measured adopter characteristics--innovativeness, need for collegial support, and conservativeness.
