Self-Identified Strengths and Self-Efficacy in Adults with Chronic Disease

31 January 2019

Abstract

Self-management models for chronic disease are increasingly being utilized in healthcare settings due to growing prevalence and diagnosis of life-long disease diagnoses. To support long-term outcomes of individuals with chronic diseases, care is increasingly focusing on utilizing innate capacities of the persons presenting for care and their family systems. The purpose of this study was to determine the predictive relationship between self-reported strengths, perceived self-efficacy, and health-related quality of life in a community sample of adults who self-identify as having one or more chronic diseases. 192-participants were recruited through Amazon’s MechanicalTurk crowdsourcing platform. These participants completed four self-report measures gathering information regarding the participants demographics, perceived self-efficacy, self-reported strengths, and health-related quality of life. Analyses conducted indicated that self-reported strengths and self-efficacy appeared to account for a significant portion of variance in how the participants perceived their emotional well-being.
