Abstract

Nurses conduct preoperative teaching to help patients cope with the adversities of surgery. Self-efficacy can predict an individual's behavior in aversive situations (eg, surgery); therefore, assessing patients' self-efficacy is one way perioperative nurses can plan patient care and help patients through the surgical experience. This study expands on the results of a previous evaluation of a preoperative selfefficacy scale. The content and face validity of the revised 15-item scale used in this study were assessed before the instrument was administered to preoperative patients. Evidence supports the validity of the multidimensional instrument. Internal consistency estimates >.84 support the subscales' reliability. AORN J 62 (Aug 1995) 244-250. © 1995 AORN, Inc.
