Weinstein and Riedy developed RAPIDD and defined the 4 constructs based on summative subscales of the 20 items.
Following pilot testing, the RAPIDD and the PCCT pretests were administered to both groups by the researcher at the first meeting with each participant.
A repeated--measures analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to evaluate each of the 4 RAPIDD construct scores.
No statistically significant difference was found between the control group and treatment group for any of the RAPIDD constructs except valuing dental health.
This MI intervention had no significant impact on any of the 4 RAPIDD constructs.
