Abstract [en]

Reliable and valid instruments are essential when examining the role of self-efficacy and locus of control in the self-care context. The aim of this study was to test the validity and reliability of the Self-Efficacy Scale in Self-Care (SESSC) and the Swedish version of the Recovery Locus of Control scale (RLoC) in the context of minor illness. A descriptive correlational design was used to assess the psychometric characteristics of the scales. The study population was 317 randomly selected Swedish inhabitants aged 18–80. The results from this study showed that the RLoC has limitations in reliability and validity and should not be applied in the context of self-care of minor illness. The SESSC proved to be a reliable and valid instrument in assessing self-efficacy in self-care for minor illness.
