Little is known about how children with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) develop the powers to engage in the daily activities required to maintain their health. Nurses play a crucial role in teaching and supporting children with IDDM and their families as they learn the complex skills and knowledge required for effective self-care. The purpose of this study was to survey mothers of children with IDDM to determine the level of self-care agency development in school-age children with diabetes and determine factors influencing this development. Orem's (1995) theory provided the framework. Following a qualitative, descriptive study, a questionnaire including 75 items measuring task ability, current level of task performance, factors influencing self-care agency development, and stressors was generated. Psychometric evaluation procedures included a review by four expert judges to determine content validity, factor analysis for construct validity, Cronbach alpha for internal consistency, and test-retest to evaluate reliability stability. This questionnaire was mailed to 220 mothers of children with IDDM between the ages of 8 and 16 years; 70 mothers returned the tool. Data analysis is in progress. Results will lead to guidelines which will help parents and health professionals assist children to practice effective self-care.
