The probability of having multiple chronic conditions increases with chronological age. More than 80% of the elderly report having at least one chronic problem (Easton, 1999). The major chronic problems of older persons in Thailand are hypertension and arthritis (Sermsri, 1999). Arthritis, osteoporosis, and hip fractures commonly results in disability. Disability is most common among women of advanced age (Jitipunkul, Kunanusont, Poonchareon,& Suriyawongpisal, 1999). How to help older persons in this group restore and maintain physical activity and be independent is an important issue in rehabilitation nursing. Self-efficacy, outcome expectations and internal personal factors may explain health behavior and are related to exercise and physical activity among older adults (Dzewaltowski, 1994). The purpose of this study is to establish reliability of Self-Efficacy and Outcome Expectations Scales for Exercise and Functional Activity. This research project was conducted in two large hospitals in Thailand. Subjects were 20 older persons (60 years and older) in geriatric orthopedic rehabilitation after hip or knee replacement or another orthopedic surgery of a lower extremity. Self Efficacy for Exercise (SEE) Scale, Self Efficacy for Functional Activity (SEFA) Scale, Outcome Expectation for Exercise (OEE) Scale, and Outcome Expectation for Functional Activity (OEFA) Scale developed by Resnick (1999,2000) were used. The SEE Scale, SEFA Scale, OEE Scale, and OEFA Scale were translated into Thai and back translated into English. The investigator and a mentor met and discussed discrepancies and resolved these instruments. Finally, the Thai versions of the instruments were tested with Thai older persons to assure that they understood the items. The questionnaires were then administered twice to the subjects after their orthopedic surgery once on the Day1 in rehabilitation program, and again on the Day2. Reliability using Cronbach's alpha coefficient and Pearson product moment correlation coefficient will be reported.
