Are Beliefs and Attitudes a proxy for Behavior?
I am studying nurses' attitudes and beliefs regarding open visitation in the adult ICU atmosphere. Several studies have measured nurses' beliefs and attitudes pre and post implementation of liberalized visitation policy. However, other studies show nurses' behavior is independent of policy. So, is there support that these researchers can imply that the nurses' behavior in fact changed if their attitudes changed? Or, in the broader context, is measuring attitudes and beliefs a substitute for measuring behavior?
