Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Hospital Social Work Self-Efficacy Scale, based on Bandura's social cognitive theory, is intended to measure social workers' confidence regarding their ability to perform specific aspects of hospital social work. The scale was developed during an evaluation of a social work fieldwork program. The study reported here is a replication of that evaluation. New data regarding the reliability and validity of the scale are presented.
