Introduction: The sudden change in condition due to disability in stroke patients impacts their psychological condition and behavior. Low self-efficacy in stroke patients can affect depression and low quality of life. One of the factors that can increase self-efficacy in stroke patients is family support. This study analyzed the correlation between family support and self-efficacy in stroke survivors.
Methods: This cross-sectional study involved seventy-one stroke survivors who were included in the inclusion criteria selected through purposive sampling. Data were collected using a demographic data questionnaire, the Family Support Questionnaire, and the Stroke Self-Efficacy Questionnaire (SSEQ). The data were analyzed using the Spearman rho correlation test with a significance level of α ≤ 0.05.
Results: Half of the participants were women (50.7%), married (88.7%), and aged (Mean±SD, 56,23± 6,273). The result showed a significant correlation between family support and self-efficacy (p = 0,000) with medium relationship strength (r = 0,58).
Conclusion: The higher the family support, the higher the self-efficacy of stroke patients. Nurses are expected to be able to provide family education to provide continuous support to family members who suffer from a stroke so that self-efficacy in stroke survivors increases.
