Aims: Patients with blood cancer are encountering numerous problems following bone marrow transplantation which
exert negative impact on self-care self efficacy. The present study has been conducted to determine the effect of healthpromotion
strategies on self-care self-efficacy among patients undergoing bone marrow transplantation.
Methods: This before- after semi experimental study was performed among patients candidate for bone marrow
transplantation in Shariati Hospital of Tehran in 2009. Sixty patients were randomly allocated into two groups of 30
participants each as experimental and control groups; the former received education on health promotion strategies and
the latter was treated according to the ward's routine. Self efficacy was compared between the two groups before and
thirty days after the intervention. Data were analyzed by SPSS11.5 statistical software using descriptive statistics,
independent and paired t-test, covariance analysis and chi-square.
Results: No significant difference was observed between the two groups in terms of demographic variables. The selfefficacy
scale was increased in general comparison as well as adaptability, decision-making and stress reduction
parameters in control with respect to the experimental group and also at post compared to pre-intervention in both
groups (p<0.001). The mean self-efficacy scores was statistically different in all dimensions after in comparison with
before the intervention (p<0.05).
Conclusion: Education on health promotion strategies to bone marrow transplant patients can increase patients'
confidence in performing self-care processes and consequently brings more survival along with higher quality of life
among this group.
