Abstract

This quasi-experimental research, two groups pretest-posttest design, aimed to study the effects of  a self - efficacy enhancement program on the self-efficacy beliefs  and  caring  behaviors  of  caregivers to control  heart  failure  in  children  with  congenital  heart disease. The sampling group was 30 caregivers of  children with  Congenital  Heart  Disease from Birth  to  6  Years selected via purposive sampling with 15 cases as the control group and 15 cases. Data were analyzed using  T-test, Wilcoxon Sing Rank Test  and Mann-Whitney U  test. Results  found that after the experiment: 1) For the experimental group, the mean score on caregivers' their self-efficacy  beliefs  and  their  caring  behaviors  was statistically significant  higher than before experiment (p<0.001) 2) The mean score  on caregivers'  their self-efficacy  beliefs  and  their  caring  behaviors  in  the experimental group was statistically significant  higher than those in the control group (p<0.001)
