AIM The aim was to develop and psychometrically test the self-care of chronic illness Inventory, a generic measure of self-care. BACKGROUND Existing measures of self-care are disease-specific or behaviour-specific; no generic measure of self-care exists. DESIGN Cross-sectional survey. METHODS We developed a 20-item self-report instrument based on the Middle Range Theory of Self-Care of Chronic Illness, with three separate scales measuring Self-Care Maintenance, Self-Care Monitoring, and…

Measuring self-care in the general adult population: development and psychometric testing of the Self-Care Inventory

Preliminary evidence of validity and reliability supports the SCI, a theoretically based instrument designed to measure self-care in the general adult population, in use in this group.

Psychometric characteristics of the caregiver contribution to self-care of chronic illness inventory.

The Caregiver Contribution to Self-Care of Chronic Illness Inventory is valid and reliable and can be used in clinical practice and research.

The Self-Care in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Inventory: Development and Psychometric Evaluation

This study developed two instruments, the Self-Care in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Inventory (SC-COPDI) and the COPD-Self-Care Self-Efficacy Scale (SCES), and tested their

Self-Care of Chronic Illness Inventory: An Initial Psychometric Evaluation in People Living With HIV in Italy

Preliminary psychometric analyses of the structural validity and internal consistency of the Self-Care of Chronic Illness Inventory among 108 PLWH living in Italy largely replicate the instrument's original factor structure and indicated high internal consistency and reliability.

Self-Care of African Immigrant Adults with Chronic Illness

Self-care self-efficacy and perceived income adequacy were better determinants of self-care than acculturation, and the perception of inadequate income was a significant determinant of poor self- care management.

Symptom Recognition as a Mediator in the Self-Care of Chronic Illness

It is suggested that symptom recognition promotes autonomous self-care behaviors in people with a chronic condition and directly affects consulting self- care management behaviors but not through symptom recognition.

Validity and Reliability of Caregiver Contribution to Self-Care of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Inventory and Caregiver Self-Efficacy in Contributing to Self-Care Scale.

The study tested the construct validity and reliability of the Caregiver Contribution to Self-Care of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Inventory and the Caregiver Self-Efficacy in

Cross-cultural applicability of the Self-Care Self-Efficacy Scale in a multi-national study.

The study findings support cross-cultural and cross-national utility of the SCSES for research on self-care across United States, China (Hong Kong), Italy, and Brazil.

Depression and self-care in older adults with multiple chronic conditions: A multivariate analysis.

In multimorbid populations, depression is more likely to be associated with self-care maintenance than the other self- care dimensions, and self-Care maintenance behaviors should be prioritized in assessment and focused on when developing interventions targeting depressed older adults with multorbidity.



Development and psychometric testing of a theory-based tool to measure self-care in diabetes patients: the Self-Care of Diabetes Inventory

The SCODI is a valid and reliable theoretically-grounded tool to measure self-care in type 1 and type 2 DM patients and was a significant predictor of self- care maintenance, monitoring and management.

Development and Validation of the Patient Assessment of Chronic Illness Care (PACIC)

A brief, validated patient self-report instrument to assess the extent to which patients with chronic illness receive care that aligns with the Chronic Care Model, the PACIC appears to be a practical instrument that is reliable and has face, construct, and concurrent validity.

A literature review on self-care of chronic illness: definition, assessment and related outcomes.

Supporting patient self-care is recognized as a crucial factor in chronic illness care, and the development of general non-disease-specific assessment tools could facilitate the evaluation of complex patients, especially those with multiple co-morbidities.

The English and Spanish Self-Efficacy to Manage Chronic Disease Scale measures were validated using multiple studies.

Reliability, validity and factor structure of the Appraisal of Self-Care Agency Scale-Revised (ASAS-R).

The 15-item three-factor ASAS-R is a short, reliable and valid instrument to measure self-care agency among individuals from the general population, but further psychometric evaluation is needed among individuals with chronic diseases, especially those with diabetes mellitus.

A Middle-Range Theory of Self-Care of Chronic Illness

A middle-range theory of self-care is described that addresses the process of maintaining health with health promoting practices within the context of the management required of a chronic illness.

An Update on the Self-care of Heart Failure Index

This article addresses 8 specific questions about reliability, item difficulty, frequency of administration, learning effects, social desirability, validity, judgments of self-care adequacy, clinically relevant change, and comparability of the various versions of the SCHFI.

Comparison of self-care behaviors of heart failure patients in 15 countries worldwide.

Dimensionality and reliability of the self-care of heart failure index scales: further evidence from confirmatory factor analysis.

The results of the analysis demonstrate that issues of dimensionality and reliability cannot be separated, and coefficient alpha should not be used to assess reliability of the self-care maintenance and theSelf-care management scales, due to their multidimensionality.

How general practitioners perceive and assess self-care in patients with multiple chronic conditions: a qualitative study

GPs in this study had dual perceptions of self-care, related to both the chronic health conditions and to the broader situational contexts of their patients’ lives, which might be resisted by the Danish disease management programs.
