Modelling of Human Behaviour and Response to the Spread of Infectious Diseases
MetadataShow full item record
We incorporate two types of human behavioural changes into the epidemic models. First, a two-subpopulation imitation dynamic model is constructed via the replicator dynamical equations to study the self-initiated pre-cautionary health protective behaviour under the cost-benefit considerations and group pressure. Second, the impacts of additional characteristics of imperfect vaccine and the asymmetric property of smoothed best response on the vaccination behaviour are studied within the vaccination population game framework, and via the Gompertz function, respectively.

Examining the predictive utility of an extended theory of planned behaviour model in the context of specific individual safe food-handlingMullan, Barbara; Allom, Vanessa; Sainsbury, Kirby; Monds, L. (2015)In order to minimise the occurrence of food-borne illness, it is recommended that individuals perform safe food-handling behaviours, such as cooking food properly, cleaning hands and surfaces before preparing food, keeping ...
From perceived autonomy support to intentional behaviour: Testing an integrated model in three healthy-eating behavioursGirelli, L.; Hagger, Martin; Mallia, L.; Lucidi, F. (2015)A motivational model integrating self-determination theory, the theory of planned behaviour, and the health action process approach was tested in three samples in three behavioural contexts: fruit and vegetable, breakfast, ...
Using social-cognition models to predict and design interventions to modify consumers' safe food handling behaviourMullan, Barbara (2010)Despite the recognised importance of food-safety, a large number of consumers do not practice adequate food-safety in the home. It is estimated that 5.4 million Australians get sick annually from eating contaminated food ...
