[Research Paper or Poster Presentation] Background: People with diabetes have reported more psychological distress due to complex complications and day-to-day management demands. Resilience is an individual's capacity to maintain physical and psychological well-being. However, studies into the investigation of the relationship between resilience and adaptive outcomes in adults with diabetes are scarce. Objective: The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships among personal characteristics, social support, resilience, and self-care behaviour in adults with type 2 diabetes. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted with a self-administered questionnaire. Participants consisted of 250 adults with type 2 diabetes attending endocrine outpatient departments (OPD) of three hospitals in Taiwan. Pearson product moment correlation and hierarchical regression were analysed for the study. Findings: Results indicated that social support was significantly and positively correlated with resilience (r=0.55, p<0.01) and self-care behaviour (r=0.28, p<0.05). In addition, resilience was significantly and positively correlated with self-care behaviour (r=0.30, p<0.01). A total of 24.0% of variance in self-care behaviour can be explained by age and resilience. Conclusions: The findings suggest that resilience is an important factor that associates with social support and self-care behaviour in adults with type 2 diabetes. The results of this study can further facilitate nurses in providing support, information, and intervention programs among people with diabetes.
