OBJECTIVE: To adapt and validate a Brazilian Portuguese version of the European Heart Failure Self-Care Behavior Scale.. METHODS: The cross-cultural adaptation (translation, synthesis, back-translation, expert committee review, and pretesting) and validation (assessment of face validity, content validity, and internal consistency reliability) were carried out in accordance with the literature. The European Heart Failure Self-Care Behavior Scale assesses key components of self-care: recognition of the signs and symptoms of decompensated heart failure (HF) and decision-making when these signs and symptoms arise. It comprises 12 items (range 12-60, where lower scores indicate better self-care).. RESULTS: The sample comprised 124 HF patients with a mean age of 62.3 ± 12 years. The Cronbachs Alpha internal consistency was 0.70 and the intraclass correlation coefficient for reproducibility was 0.87.. CONCLUSION: Face and content validity, internal consistency and reproducibility have lended validity ...

Aims: Improved self-care is the goat of many heart failure (HF) management programmes. The 12-item European Heart Failure Self-Care Behaviour Scale (EHFScB scale) was developed and tested to measure patient self-care behaviours. It is now available in 14 languages. The aim of this study was to further determine reliability and validity of the EHFScB scale. Methods and results: Data from 2592 HF patients (mean age 73 years, 63% mate) from six countries were analysed. Internal consistency was determined by Cronbachs alpha. Validity was established by (1) interviews with HF experts and with HF patients; (2) item analysis; (3) confirmatory factor analysis; and (4) analysing the relationship between the EHFScB scale and scales measuring quality of life and adherence. Internal consistency of the 12-item scale was 0.77 (0.71-0.85). After factor analyses and critical evaluation of both psychometric properties and content of separate items, a nine-item version was further evaluated. The reliability ...

Diabetes is a major public health problem in China. Diabetes self-management is critical for patients to achieved better health outcomes, however, previous studies have shown suboptimal diabetes self-management performance. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to identify factors associated with diabetes self-management in Chinese adults. The results showed that confrontation, resignation, overall health beliefs, perceived susceptibility, perceived barriers, and self-efficacy were factors associated with overall diabetes self-management performance and six aspects of diabetes self-management behaviors. There is some limited evidence to suggest that provider-patient communication, married individuals, higher educational level, and higher household income level may also be linked to better diabetes self-management practice. Having healthcare insurance and utilizing chronic illness resources generally appeared to have a favorable effect on diabetes self-management performance. In addition,
Men were most likely to see self-care as a primary responsibility and women were most likely to collaborate with others in making decisions. Although, men were more likely to make independent decisions related to self-care management (p=0.01), the women had higher self-care management scores (p=.04). When adequacy of self-care (defined as ≥70 on the each standardized SCHFI scale) was compared across the role groups, significant differences found (p=.03). Those who described their role as only to do what they were told (i.e., followed the direction of others) had poorer self-care (management, p=.03; maintenance, p=.06).. Conclusion: Perceived role in HF self-care varies by gender and is linked to quantitative evidence of self-care. Assessment of perceived role by clinicians can guide patient education, especially for those who are likely to defer to others. Tailored instructions may be needed to help women assume independent responsibility for self-care and to improve the decisions made by men. ...

Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects nearly 17 million Americans (1), with over 10 million cases diagnosed, and is characterized by serious, costly, and potentially fatal complications. The total cost of diagnosed cases of diabetes in the U.S. in 2002 was estimated to be $92 billion (1). To prevent or delay the costly complications and to enable people with diabetes to lead healthy, productive lives, appropriate medical care based on current standards of practice, self-management education, and medication and supplies must be available to everyone with diabetes. This paper is based on technical reviews titled "Diabetes Self-Management Education" (2) and "National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education Programs" (3).. The goal of medical care for people with diabetes is to optimize glycemic control and minimize complications. The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) demonstrated that treatment that maintains blood glucose levels near normal in type 1 diabetes delays the ...
The identification of diabetes complications or other patient factors that may influence self-management should be considered a critical indicator for diabetes education that requires immediate attention and adequate resources. During routine medical care, the provider may identify factors that influence treatment and the associated self-management plan. These factors may include the patients ability to manage and cope with diabetes complications, other health conditions, medications, physical limitations, emotional needs, and basic living needs. These factors may be identified at the initial diabetes encounter or may arise at any time. Such patient factors influence the clinical, psychosocial, and behavioral aspects of diabetes care.. The diagnosis of additional health conditions and the potential need for additional medications can complicate self-management for the patient. Diabetes education can address the integration of multiple medical conditions into overall care with a focus on ...

The study demonstrated that home BP telemonitoring combined with self-care support reduced the BP of diabetic patients with uncontrolled systolic hypertension and improved hypertension control. Our system was fully automated, and self-care messages, which were sent immediately after each BP reading, were based on care paths defined by running averages of transmitted readings. The BP results confirmed our pilot study findings14 and were the same whether 24-hour ambulatory BP monitoring or 7-day home BP measurements were used to assess outcome. In the self-care support group, 51% achieved the guideline-recommended BP target of ,130/80 mmHg,1 which was substantially higher than that of 37.5% among treated hypertensive diabetic patients in a recent BP survey in the United States.2. Patients with chronic conditions inevitably engage in self-care activities.4 In the case of hypertension, this may take the form of self-measuring BP, making lifestyle changes, or experimenting with prescribed treatment. ...
This study evaluated the impact of The Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) on both work-related outcomes and health-related outcomes.
Discussion. The complementary and self-help treatments with the best evidence of effectiveness are St Johns wort, physical exercise, self-help books involving cognitive behaviour therapy, and light therapy for winter depression. However, none of these has as much support as antidepressants or face-to-face cognitive behaviour therapy, both of which are standard treatments recommended in clinical practice guidelines.127 For example, according to recent meta-analyses, newer antidepressants have been tested on more than 30 000 participants in 315 trials128 and cognitive behaviour therapy on 2765 participants in 48 trials.129 By contrast, St Johns wort has been tested on 2291 participants in 27 trials,31 exercise on 724 participants in 14 trials,84 and self-help books involving cognitive behaviour therapy on 273 participants in six trials.75 Furthermore, while there are some well-designed studies on these complementary and self-help treatments, in general the reported studies are of poorer quality, ...

Session presented on Sunday, July 27, 2014: Purpose: Self-care among heart failure patients is found to be affected by several factors including education as one of the most significant predictor. Prior studies on self-care, from western countries have revealed that higher the education better is the self-care. But the level of self-care and its predictors are yet un explored in developing countries like Pakistan. Therefore, this study aimed to compare the level of self-care and its associated factors among educated and uneducated HF patients of a country which has lowest literacy rates. Methods: 230 HF patients (115 educated and 115 uneducated) were recruited in the study. Their level of self care behaviors and its associated factors were assessed using European heart failure self-care behavior scale (EHFSCBs) via a cross sectional survey. Results: The overall level of Self-care behavior was significantly higher among educated HFpatients as compared to their uneducated counterparts (p=0.005). ...
BACKGROUND: COPD self-management is a complex behavior influenced by many factors. Despite scientific evidence that better disease outcomes can be achieved by enhancing self-management, many COPD patients do not respond to self-management interventions. To move toward more effective self-management interventions, knowledge of characteristics associated with activation for self-management is needed. ... read more The purpose of this study was to identify key patient and disease characteristics of activation for self-management. METHODS: An explorative cross-sectional study was conducted in primary and secondary care in patients with COPD. Data were collected through questionnaires and chart reviews. The main outcome was activation for self-management, measured with the 13-item Patient Activation Measure (PAM). Independent variables were sociodemographic variables, self-reported health status, depression, anxiety, illness perception, social support, disease severity, and comorbidities. RESULTS: A ...

Learning self-management strategies related to asthma prevention or attack management can help improve childrens lung function and feelings of self-control, as well as reduce school absences and days of restricted activity and decrease emergency room utilization. There were no differences in the risk or frequency of hospitalizations between usual care and care supplemented with self-management education. These types of more rare and serious events may be beyond the ability of education to influence. While more research is needed to make direct comparisons between different types of interventions, the limited evidence currently available suggests that in general, self-management education works well for persons with moderate-to-severe asthma as well as for those with mild-to-moderate asthma. Peak flow-based educational strategies generally show greater effects than symptom-based strategies. Beneficial effects on measures of physiological function were apparent within six months, but benefits did ...

Many health professionals believe that current education and self management programmes improve patients knowledge of asthma but few high quality research studies have been done. Thus, the effect of education on health outcomes remains disputed and the structures of optimal educational programmes have yet to be ascertained. Gibson et al review the benefits of self management by adults with asthma in conjunction with regular follow up by a health professional. In a previous review they concluded that "information only" interventions did not show benefits.1 The current study comprehensively combines and assesses published randomised studies supporting the commonly held belief that a focused educational intervention improves health outcomes for patients with asthma. It offers guidance on the composition of health education programmes and concludes that self management programmes should involve written action plans and physiological self monitoring plus regular medical review.. Although data on ...
