21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this study was to test a path model of empowerment perception, emotional distress, and self-care behavior to quality of life (QoL) in Taiwanese Type 2 Diabetes patients. Methods: A proposed path model was developed. By convenience sampling, 436 Type 2 diabetes patients recruited from three hospitals in Taiwan completed questionnaires. The questionnaire included demographic data, Diabetes Distress scale, Diabetes Empowerment scale, Self-care Behavior scale, and Diabetes Quality of Life scale (DQOL). The DQOL measured satisfaction, impact, and diabetes-related worry QoL. Structural equation modeling was used to test the fit of the hypothesized path model to data.á Results: A modified path model with fit indices of chi squared=4.17(df=1, p=0.041);GFI=0.995; AGFI=0.95 and RMSEA=0.085 best fitted the data. Self-care behaviors had significantly positive effect on satisfaction QoL. However, self-care behaviors had significantly negative effect on impact and diabetes-related worry QoL. Emotional distress had significantly negative total effects on satisfaction, impact, and diabetes-related worry QoL. Emotional distress could not influence satisfaction, impact, and diabetes-related-worry QoL through the mediating of self-care behaviors. Empowerment perceptions had significantly positive effect on satisfaction QoL, not only directly but also through the effect of self-care behaviors. Empowerment perceptions had no significant effect on impact and diabetes-related-worry QoL. Conclusion: The study supports the hypothesis that improving empowerment perception and self-care behaviors could improve the satisfaction of QoL. Reducing emotional distress could increase the satisfaction, impact and diabetes-related-worry QoL. Healthcare professionals should be aware of the negative effect of self-care behaviors on impact and diabetes-related-worry QoL of diabetes patients.
