Aims: Adherence to therapeutic regimen is one of the important factors in achieving therapeutic goals; prediction of effective factors affecting it, especially in patients with spinal cord injury, is very important due to the nature of the disease. This study aimed at determining correlation between self-efficacy and adherence to therapeutic regimen in veteran with spinal cord injury in Khatamolanbia Hospital in 2018.
Instruments and Methods: This study is a descriptive-correlational study, consisting of all veterans with spinal cord injury referring to Khatamolanbia Hospital, Tehran, in the first half of 2017. 200 veterans were selected, using available sampling method and based on inclusion criteria. To collect the data, we used 3 questionnaires, including demographic, Moorong’s self-efficacy scale (MSES) and Modanloo’s Adherence to Therapeutic Regimen questionnaires. The data were analyzed by SPSS19 software, using Smirnov-Kolmogorov, Pearson correlation, and multivariate regression.
Findings: Self-efficacy of veterans with spinal cord injury was 75.61±14.98 and adherence to therapeutic regimen was 77.04±11.14. There was a positive and significant correlation between self-efficacy and adherence to therapeutic regimen (p=0.008; r=0.214).
Conclusion: The self-efficacy of patients with spinal cord injury is directly and significantly correlated with their adherence to therapeutic regimen. It means that by increasing self-efficacy in these patients, their adherence to the prescribed therapeutic regimen is higher.
