Relationship of family and self efficacy support to the rehabilitation motivation of stroke patients

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Stroke is a common global health care problem. Life changes suddenly in a stroke patient impact psychological conditions, including patient motivation, which can interfere with the rehabilitation process after stroke. Post-stroke rehabilitation interventions are indispensable for the recovery of motor function, muscle strengthening, and prevention of other stroke complications. However, only 44% of patients adhere to the rehabilitation program. Factors such as family support and good selfefficacy are important parts of increasing motivation for post-stroke rehabilitation. The purpose of this study was to analyze the relationship between family dependence and self-efficacy with motivation for the post, stroke rehabilitation. Quantitative research with a descriptive correlational design through a cross-sectional approach and 111 post-stroke patients were undergoing post-stroke rehabilitation <1 year, including this study. Roper spearman test was used to determine the relationship between family support and self-efficacy with rehabilitation motivation for stroke patients. The analysis test in this study used the SPSS version 16 application. The results showed a strong relationship between family support and rehabilitation motivation (p = 0.000), coefficient value (r) = 0.620 and self-efficacy relationship with significant rehabilitation motivation (p = 0.000) with coefficient value (r = 0.682) with the direction of a positive relationship. Family support and self-efficacy are closely related to patient motivation in undergoing post-stroke medical rehabilitation. With better family support and selfefficacy of stroke, patients can increase patient motivation in undergoing post-stroke rehabilitation.
