The purpose of this study was to test the effect of an integrated health promotion program in middle-aged women. METHOD: The research design was a quasi experimental, one-group pretest-posttest design. Data was collected from July 1st to August 31st, 2003. One group consisted of 30 subjects. The instruments used for the study were the Self Efficacy Scale and the Health Promotion Behavior Scale developed by Park (1995), Subjective health status developed Speake (1989) and menopause-related symptoms developed by Park (1995). The data was analyzed using the SPSS WIN 10.0 program. In order to compare the effects of the pre-post synthesized health promotion program, the ed t-test was employed. RESULT: There was not a significant increase in subjective health status after the integrated health promotion program, nor was there a significant decrease in menopause-related symptoms after the synthesized health promotion program. There was a significant increase in self efficacy after the integrated health promotion program (p=.029), and there was also a significant increase in health promotion behavior after the integrated health promotion program (p=.006). CONCLUSIONS: Through an 8 week education program for health promotion, self efficacy and health promotion behavior were effectively changed in middle-aged women.
