Sammanfattning (abstract):
Purpose: Self-efficacy is patients’ confidence in their ability to initiate and maintain self-care. The purpose of this study was to validate the Swedish version of the Cardiac Self-Efficacy Scale (CSES) as a first step in preparing an evaluation of a person-centred care intervention. Methods: The study sample consisted of 288 patients (72 women, 216 men; mean age 61.6) who completed the CSES two months after hospitalization for an event of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Construct validity was psychometrically evaluated by using confirmatory factor analysis. Model fit evaluation was estimated by performing the following tests: Chi2, the Comparative Fit Index (CFI), the Standardized Root Mean Square Residual (SRMR) and the Root Mean Square Error of Approximation (RMSEA). Results: Tentative findings indicated that the Swedish version of CSES was represented by three dimensions in comparison with the original version of the CSES that comprises two dimensions; control symptoms and maintain functioning. That is, the Swedish version of the CSES includes two factors within the control symptom dimension (compared to one in the original CSES version) while the maintain function remained as stable. Conclusions: The Swedish version of the CSES seems to be a reliable and valid measure of cardiac self-efficacy. Further it is an easily understandable questionnaire and a useful tool to identify patients’ level of cardiac specific self-efficacy.
