These articles show differences in risk-taking as a function of expected benefits: Men, backpackers and young travellers reported a higher willingness to dosperf recreational risks than women, luxury travellers and older travellers. These articles show differences in risk-taking among domains: Despite the continuing growth of international tourism, very little research has been done on the link between individual risk attitudes and health behaviours during travel.

A domain-specific risk-attitude scale: Multiple linear regression models were used to model the relationship between DOSPERT risk-taking subdomain score and health behaviour. Of the 75 travellers that completed the study, 70 Brown and Braver article A computational model of risk, conflict, and individual difference effects in the anterior cingulate cortex from Brain Research.



It is obvious that people differ in the way they resolve work-related or personal decisions that involve risk and uncertainty.

Our study uses a validated risk-taking questionnaire Domain-Specific Risk-Taking Scale DOSPERT and data from a smartphone application to study the association between pre-travel risk attitudes and the occurrence of behaviours during travel.

A prospective cohort of scqle to Thailand used a smartphone application to answer a daily questionnaire about health behaviours and events. These articles show differences in risk-taking among specific groups: Measuring risk perceptions and risk behaviors.

In our study, individual scores on risk-taking in the health and safety subdomain scalw the DOSPERT questionnaire seem to be predictive of health behaviours both during travel and at home.

Incidence of drug and alcohol risk behaviours during travel, itching from mosquitoes, smoking and failing to use a seatbelt in automobiles while at home were all significantly associated with an individual’s score on the health and safety DOSPERT subdomain. Theory and Experimental Evidence from Management Science. By pairing new methods of data collection with questionnaires such as DOSPERT that identify key traveller characteristics to intervene on, travel medicine doctors will be able to provide more specialised health advice, ensuring that all travellers receive well-rounded advice about the full range of health challenges they will face during travel.
