Disease relevance of Self Efficacy


Psychiatry related information on Self Efficacy


High impact information on Self Efficacy

  • Severity of psychologic symptoms was associated with increased smoking rate, high nicotine dependence, and low self-efficacy [6].
  • The goal of this study was to evaluate in a randomized controlled trial a theory-based intervention to improve patient self-efficacy and partner support to manage SLE [9].
  • At entry to and exit from the study, all participants completed the Osteoporosis Knowledge Test, the Osteoporosis Health Belief Scale, and the Osteoporosis Self-Efficacy Scale [11].
  • The best predictors for GPA were academic self-efficacy and achievement motivation (ps =.496 and.303, respectively) [12].
  • Factor and reliability analysis were utilized to develop aggregate measures for self-efficacy (Cronbach's Alpha 0.60), intimacy (Cronbach's Alpha 0.80), and environmental-structural support (Cronbach's Alpha 0.72) [13].

Chemical compound and disease context of Self Efficacy

  • OBJECTIVE--The purpose of this study was to determine if participation in a patient empowerment program would result in improved psychosocial self-efficacy and attitudes toward diabetes, as well as a reduction in blood glucose levels [14].
  • RESULTS: The Stanford Nutrition Action Program classes showed significantly greater net improvements in nutrition knowledge (+7.7), attitudes (/0.2), and self-efficacy (-0.2) than the general nutrition classes; they also showed significantly greater reductions in the percentage of calories from total (-2.3%) and saturated (-0.9%) fat [15].
  • MEASUREMENTS: Assessment included treatment retention; change in cocaine-related urge, self-efficacy, pros and cons, and motivation; substance use and problems during 12-month follow-up [16].
  • Changing physicians' attitudes, knowledge, and self-efficacy regarding cholesterol screening and management [17].
  • Subjects who reported negative desire for alcohol in the Alcohol Cue condition also reported greater self-efficacy to resist drinking in the future [18].

Biological context of Self Efficacy


Gene context of Self Efficacy

  • First, prospective analyses showed that ROEs assessed at T1 predicted relapse reported at T2 over and above self-efficacy [22].
  • At Time 1 (T1) and Time 2 (T2), participants filled in a self-report questionnaire assessing residual outcome expectations (ROEs), self-efficacy, craving for tobacco, and smoking behavior, which was sent and returned by mail [22].
  • Risk perceptions, outcome expectancies, and action self-efficacy were specified as predictors of the intention at Wave 1 [23].
  • Behavioral intention and coping self-efficacy served as mediators linking the 3 predictors with low-fat and high-fiber dietary intake 6 months later at Wave 2 [23].
  • The mean treatment period was 10 weeks.Measurement: The Chronic Respiratory Disease Questionnaire, the modified version of the Pulmonary Functional Status and Dyspnea Questionnaire, and the COPD Self-Efficacy Scale were administered at baseline, and 6, 12, 18, and 24 weeks from the beginning of the rehabilitation program [24].
