Self-efficacy theory: Implications for the occupational health nurse

Sheila T Fitzgerald

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

1. Self-efficacy, a concept derived from Social Learning Theory, provides a theoretical framework for behavior change. This framework can be used by the occupational health nurse to develop programs designed to effect behavior change. 2. Research studies focusing on behavior change (e.g., smoking cessation, weight control, exercise and cardiac rehabilitation, work resumption) employing the concept of self-efficacy are reviewed. 3. Self-efficacy predicts modification and maintenance of behavior.
