Reliability, validity, and responsiveness to change of the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System self-efficacy for managing chronic conditions measure in systemic sclerosis
Objective: The aim of this study is to examine validity, reliability, and responsiveness to change of Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System Self-Efficacy for Managing Chronic Conditions in persons with systemic sclerosis.
Methods: We conducted a post hoc analysis of the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System Self-Efficacy measure and other quality-of-life measures from systemic sclerosis participants from a 16-week randomized control trial. The trial compared an Internet-based self-management program to a control condition where participants were provided an educational book. All participants completed outcome measures at baseline and following the 16-week trial period.
Results: The mean age of participants was 53.7 years, 91% were female and systemic sclerosis subtype included 44.9% limited/sine and 43.1% diffuse; mean disease duration was 9.0 years. All self-efficacy subscales (Managing Emotions, Symptoms, Daily Activities, Social Interactions, and Medications/Treatment) demonstrated good internal consistency (.92-.96). All subscales showed statistically significant correlations with other validated measures of depressive symptoms and quality of life (.20-.86) but were not associated with satisfaction nor with appearance. The subscales appropriately discriminated between those with and without depressive symptoms and demonstrated responsiveness to change over the 16-week period for those who had a corresponding increase in reported quality of life.
Conclusion: The Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System Self-Efficacy measure is valid, reliable, and responsive to change for persons with systemic sclerosis.
