MENINO, Eva Patrícia da Silva Guilherme; DIXE, Maria dos Anjos Coelho Rodrigues  y  LOURO, Maria Clarisse Carvalho Martins. Development and Validation of the Therapeutic Education for Diabetes Self-Care Behavior Scale. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2016, vol.serIV, n.8, pp.35-44. ISSN 0874-0283.  http://dx.doi.org/10.12707/RIV15049.

Background: The adoption of self-care behaviors by the person with diabetes is an outcome-determining factor, and education for self-care is an effective nursing intervention within this context. Objectives: To develop and validate the Therapeutic Education for Diabetes Self-Care Behavior Scale. Methodology: This methodological study was conducted on a sample of 104 nurses working in primary health care. The international guidelines were followed in the development and validation of the scale. Results: The analysis of the reliability of the six dimensions (healthy eating, being active, monitoring, taking medication, problem solving and healthy coping, and reducing risks) showed Cronbach's α values ranging between 0.768 and 0.933. Correlation matrices (p>0.001) and the Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin measures greater than 0.7 in all dimensions/subscales ensure reasonable adequacy of the factorial model of each dimension (subscale). Conclusion: The multidimensional scale is valid and reliable for assessing the frequency with which nurses provide therapeutic education on self-care behaviors to the person with diabetes.
