This study aims to analyze the correlations and relevance of self-efficacy items in 411 patients with diabetes using network analysis. We found that the self-efficacy items structure is consistent between genders and types of diabetes. However, the strength of item correlations was significantly higher in type 2 diabetes. The items central to the network were following a regular diet in type 2 diabetes and adjusting diet when ill in type 1 diabetes. No significant gender differences were found. Knowledge of the most central aspects of self-efficacy and their interconnections can help clinicians to target psychoeducational interventions aimed at empowering patients.

Abstract

This study aims to analyze the correlations and relevance of self-efficacy items in 411 patients with diabetes using network analysis. We found that the self-efficacy items structure is consistent between genders and types of diabetes. However, the strength of item correlations was significantly higher in type 2 diabetes. The items central to the network were following a regular diet in type 2 diabetes and adjusting diet when ill in type 1 diabetes. No significant gender differences were found. Knowledge of the most central aspects of self-efficacy and their interconnections can help clinicians to target psychoeducational interventions aimed at empowering patients.
