In this paper, we report on the development and psychometric

properties of the Diabetes Self-Care Practice Instrument (DiSCPI).

The theoretical basis of self-care is Orem's General Theory of

Nursing. The focus is on health deviation self-care, or the

actions persons with disease or illness take on their own behalf in

order to control pathology or adjust to illness. The response

scale of the 19 item DiSCPI is based on a percent format. The

items were generated from the literature, including the standards

of care for youths with IDDM Reliability and validity of the scale

was evaluated in three studies, with samples of 37*, 150, and 49

youths between the ages of 10 to 17 years. Internal consistency

ranged from .69 to .79. Test-retest reliability (n=37) was .70.

Construct validity was examined by testing predictions based on

Orem's theory and factor analysis. As hypothesized, diabetes

(health deviation) self-care was positively related to metabolic

control, general (universal) self-care was positively related to

health status, and general self-care and diabetes self-care were

positively related to each other. Principal components analysis

with varimax rotation was used to examine the factor structure. A

four factor solution explained 48 percent of the variance and lends

support to both theoretical and clinical interpretation.



Overall, the findings support adequate reliability and validity for

this newly developed scale. Recommendations for further refinement

of the scale as well as use in research and practice will be given.
