Researchers and clinicians believe that self-care management (actions
to take care of one's self) is the appropriated modality of care for
people with most types of chronic diseases. However, these persons must be
reliable, capable, and sufficiently responsible to take care of themselves
(Anderson, 1996; Clark & Dodge, 1999; McCauley, Courneya, Rudolph, Lox,
1994; Moon & Baker, 2000; Wang, 1997), and thus they need personal and
environmental resources (e.g., knowledge about the disease and about
self-care, social support, financial support, self-efficacy or belief in
their capabilities to engage in self-care, and self-care agency or
capabilities to engage in self-care). To that end, the purpose of this
study was to synthesize knowledge about self-care management for chronic
disease, identify factors that affect self-care, and expand existing
theoretical models proposing a conceptual framework and research model to
be tested in research and clinical practice. Combining constructs and/or
concepts from Orem's self-care and Bandura's self-efficacy theories, and
analysis of empirical studies the have analyzed the relationship among
those concepts served as a foundation to develop a conceptual framework
for chronic disease self-care management. Since a conceptual framework is
at a very abstract level, a research model for diabetes self-care
management (one of the many chronic diseases) was also design to test in
research and be considered more directly applicable in clinical practice.
Test of the conceptual framework using this research model for diabetes
self-care management suggested that individuals who had diabetes knowledge
and social support built up capabilities for self-care (self-care agency)
and confidence in those capabilities (self-efficacy), forming a pattern of
combination of factors, which led to better diabetes self-care management
and glycemic control.
