Title: The relationship of attitude,social influence and self-efficacy to diabetes type II outcomes.
Authors: Keefer-Ward, Autumn L
Issue Date: 9-May-2012
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the Attitude-Social Influence-Self Efficacy model and its relationship to Type II diabetes outcomes.One hundred-twelve adults ages 55-75 with Type II diabetes were recruited from a physician's office in West Central Indiana.Participants completed instruments that assessed (a)attitude,(b)social influence of the physician,(c)diabetes-specific self-efficacy and (d)diabetes-specific quality of life.A measurement of metabolic control was also obtained.Multiple regressions were performed using (a)quality of life,and (b)metabolic control as criterion varibales.Only one subscale of the self-efficacy variable scale,managing the Psychosocial Aspects of Diabetes,was found to be significant in predicting quality of life.None of the predictor variables were significant in predicting metabolic control.The author offers several explanations for the paucity of significant results.
