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


Multiple linear regression models were used to model the relationship between DOSPERT risk-taking subdomain score and health behaviour.

Incidence of drug and alcohol dos;ert behaviours during dosprt, 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.

Prior to travel, participants completed the DOSPERT, a validated dosprt scale that assesses risk-taking and perception in five content domains: Please feel free to use any of these scales with their appropriate citations.

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 scsle they will face during travel.
