Bandura's self-efficacy theory provides a useful perspective when examining medication adherence in persons living with HIV (PLWHIV). As no instrument exists to measure self-efficacy in this population, the researchers developed the 26-item HIV Self-Efficacy Scale (HIV SES) for use in a randomized clinical trial assessing the impact of a telephone delivered intervention on adherence to antiretroviral therapy. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the psychometric properties of the HIV SES. The sample of 81 PLWHIV included 55 men and 26 women, 53 whites and 28 nonwhites, ranging in age from 19-61 years. Using Cronbach's alpha, internal consistency reliability was .95. Test-retest at 12 weeks with 28 nonintervention subjects yielded r=.45 (p=.02). The HIV SES showed a weak association with the Self-Reported Medication Scale (r=.10; p=.38) and a moderately strong positive association with the Interpersonal Support Evaluation List (r=.45; p=.00). Moderate negative relationships were demonstrated with perceived complexity of the regimen (r=-.21; p=.07), impact of side effects (r=-.30; p=.01), and difficulty living with HIV (r=-.35; p=.00). The HIV SES shows promise as a reliable and valid measure to assess self-efficacy in PLWHIV taking antiretroviral therapy. Additional research is needed to confirm these findings.
