Özet

Background This is a descriptive research investigating the relationship between self-efficacy and life satisfaction in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Methods The population of this research consists of COPD patients in pulmonology clinics of Mardin State Hospital and Kızıltepe State Hospital between March 2018 and August 2018 sampling 127 patients meeting admittance criteria. The required data is collected from patient introduction forms, Satisfaction with Life Scales (SWL), General Self-Efficacy Scales (GSE), and researcher’s face-to-face interviews. Results Of the interviewers, 62.2% were males, and the average age of patiens was 66.04 ± 13.44. A statistically significant, medium-level and positive relationship is verified between life satisfaction and self-efficacy of patients (p < 0.05, r 0.350). We discovered a negatively bounded and poor relationship between GSE and the ages of participating patients, which was statistically significant (p < 0.05, r –0.27). We determined that the GSE of non-smokers was higher than smokers (p < 0.059). Conclusions We suggest determining the reasons for the decrease in GSE and SWL of patients as the first step and then to plan and perform appropriate nursing care accordingly
