Asthma management consists of a cyclical process based on clinical assessment of the patient, the implementation of therapeutic adjustments, and evaluation of the patient’s response. Self-efficacy is the person’s confidence in his or her ability to successfully perform a behaviour and guides the patient’s decisions for producing healthy behaviours. Studies have shown that asthma management is related to self-efficacy, which in turn can be influenced by various psychosocial factors. A literature search on the relationship between asthma and self-efficacy in paediatric age, has allowed us to hypothesize that adequate levels of self-efficacy might be achieved through a cyclical process, ‘the self-efficacy cycle’, taking into account assessment, identification of modifiable risk factors and patient’s response. This would make it easier to identify the personal and social aspects on which to intervene to promote a proper management of the disease.

Abstract

Asthma management consists of a cyclical process based on clinical assessment of the patient, the implementation of therapeutic adjustments, and evaluation of the patient’s response. Self-efficacy is the person’s confidence in his or her ability to successfully perform a behaviour and guides the patient’s decisions for producing healthy behaviours. Studies have shown that asthma management is related to self-efficacy, which in turn can be influenced by various psychosocial factors. A literature search on the relationship between asthma and self-efficacy in paediatric age, has allowed us to hypothesize that adequate levels of self-efficacy might be achieved through a cyclical process, ‘the self-efficacy cycle’, taking into account assessment, identification of modifiable risk factors and patient’s response. This would make it easier to identify the personal and social aspects on which to intervene to promote a proper management of the disease.
