The relationship of self-efficacy appraisals to subsequent health related outcomes: A meta-analysis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

During the 1980’s social cognitive theory has evolved as an explanation of human behavior. One of this theory’s component constructs, self-efficacy, has received increasing attention as an antecedent to health related outcomes. The results of a meta-analysis examining studies which employed the construct of self-efficacy as a predictor of health related outcomes is presented. In the literature examined, subject ratings of self-efficacy were found to consistently predict subsequent health related outcomes.
