Introduction: Self-management interventions in stroke patients are needed to control risk factors to prevent recurrent stroke. Objective: This study aimed to assess the effectiveness of self-management interventions on stroke survivors’ self-efficacy and quality of life. Methods: Electronic databases (PubMed, CINAHL, Scopus, and Science Direct) were searched for relevant articles in English for limited last five years, from 2017 until 2021. Search results were refined to focus on randomized control trials (RTCs) focusing on stroke, self-management, self-efficacy, and quality of life. Study selection, critical appraisal, data extraction, and data synthesis were conducted according to the JBI methodology. Results: Eight studies (n= seven hundred forty-nine stroke survivors) were taken, and almost all participatory studies reported an increase in self-efficacy and quality of life after receiving the self-management intervention. Conclusion: Several forms of self-management interventions have a positive impact on the self-efficacy and quality of life of stroke patients. Future studies are expected to measure stroke patients’ self-perceived burden and self-care.
