Mean difference(MD) score of the perceived benefits and barriers, perceived self-efficiency, programming, competing demand, and their commitment for planning actions increased in experimental group after interventions (P<0.001). However, there was no important increase in mean score of social support for preventive behaviors of osteoporosis in experimental group after intervention (P>0.05).
