Self-Efficacy for Symptom Management in Long-Term Adult Hematopoietic Stem Cell Survivors

Publication Date Sep 1, 2022

Abstract

Hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) survivors have a complex and multiphase recovery period. Health care delivery and psychosocial interventions for HCT survivors are challenging because many HCT recipients live great distances from the facility where they had their HCT. Therefore identifying factors associated with a patient's capability to self-manage symptoms is a significant focus of survivorship research. A patient's self-efficacy may be important for the successful management of major stressors associated with treatments and recovery. Here, we aimed to evaluate the impact of perceived self-efficacy on distress, quality of life (QoL), depression, and fatigue and identify the factors associated with lower self-efficacy. This cross-sectional study analyzed baseline data from a randomized controlled trial INSPIRE (NCT01602211) in adult (age 18 and older) survivors 2 to 10 years after HCT. Patients with recurrence or subsequent malignancy requiring cancer treatment during the 2 years before enrollment, inability to read and understand English, and lack of access to email and the Internet were excluded. Data included medical records and patient-reported outcomes including Cancer and Treatment Distress (CTXD) with 6 subscales, Patient Health Questionnaire depression scale (PHQ-8), Short Form 12 Health Survey (SF-12) physical function and mental function scores, Brief Fatigue Inventory (BFI) and Self-Efficacy. Pearson correlations were used to test bivariate associations for self-efficacy of CTXD, SF-12, BFI, and PHQ-8. G...
