Resumen

CALDERON, Citlali; CARRETE, Lorena  y  VERA, Jorge. Validation of a scale of health beliefs about type 1 diabetes for the Mexican context: HBM-T1DM. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2018, vol.60, n.2, pp.175-183. ISSN 0036-3634.  https://doi.org/10.21149/8838.

Objective:

To generate a scale to measure health beliefs among Mexican adolescents and young people with type 1 diabetes (T1DM) to determine the extent to which they affect adherence to treatment and to be able to develop more effective social marketing campaigns.

Materials and methods:

Based on the Health Belief Model (HBM), a scale was generated; three field tests were applied, and it was administered in two regions of Mexico to young people with type 1 diabetes. Tests of reliability, stability, convergence-discrimination and predictive validity were developed.

Results:

The main predictor is perceived barriers to treatment adherence, followed by self-efficacy to disease control, susceptibility/vulnerability to disease complications and perceived benefits of treatment.

Conclusion:

This scale may be especially useful for better monitoring young Mexican patients with T1DM and prevent sequelae of disease.
