Empirical testing of mid-range theories such as Orem's Self-Care Deficit Theory of Nursing is important to determine the validity of such theories as well as their contribution to nursing knowledge. Path analysis evaluates whether the model/theory provides a reasonable fit to the data as well as examines multiple relationships between and among concepts inherent in a theory. This study tested the effects of a school-based asthma intervention program on the self-care capabilities, self-care practices and health outcomes of 8-12 year old inner-city, African-American students with asthma. In addition, Orem's (2001) theoretical propositions between selected basic conditioning factors, dimensions of self-care capabilities, self-care practices and health outcomes were tested. Data from 52 students from 4 schools were obtained using self-report and health outcome measures. Three basic conditioning factors (age, gender & siblings) emerged as predictors of self-care capabilities. Asthma self-efficacy and asthma knowledge accounted for 45% of the variance in asthma self-care practice. Data from this study supports the ability of Orem's Theory to be both explanatory and predictive of self-care practices.
