The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship of selected sociocognitive variables (self-efficacy, social support, outcome efficacy, and barriers) to diabetes self-care in women with Type 2 diabetes. Diabetes self-care is essential to effective disease management. Health behaviors and self-care occur within the context of a social environment and studies have not examined the psychosocial processes to improve diabetes self-care in women. Theoretical/Conceptual Framework: The Health Belief Model and Socio-Cognitive Theory provided the conceptual framework for the study. Subjects/ Method: A descriptive correlational design using a non-probability sample of adult women, 20 – 65 years of age with Type 2 diabetes was employed for this study. Subjects completed two investigator developed instruments which assessed diabetes self-efficacy and social support and four additional measures that assessed barriers, outcome efficacy, diabetes self-care and social desirability. Subjects were provided a gift card for participation. Results: The sample had a mean age of 51.6, was predominantly Hispanic (79.8%), and had a mean duration of diabetes of 10.3 years. Multiple linear regression was used to determine the relationship between the predictor variables and outcome variable. Self-efficacy, outcome efficacy, social support and barriers explained significant amounts of variance in diet, exercise, glucose monitoring, medication, and overall diabetes self-care behavior. Conclusions: Findings exemplify the importance of examining processes which influence diabetes self-care within the social context of women’s lives. The next step in improving diabetes self-care in women is to develop interventions which are aimed at increasing confidence in performing self-care behavior, skill in managing perceived barriers, and support for performing self-care on a regular basis within the context of their lives.
