               The purpose of this quasi-experimental research was to study the effect of self-efficacy promoting program combined with reflexology on postoperative pain in patients with Laminectomy. Adult patients aged 18 - 59 years with degenerative disc disease at surgical ward, Police General Hospital were recruited. Both control (n = 22) and the experimental (n = 22) groups were matched by age, gender, level of lumbar disc, and dose of pain killer medication. The control group received the conventional care. The experimental group received the self-efficacy promoting program combined with foot reflexology developed based on the concept of Bandura. The self-efficacy program consisted of 4 principle sources of verbal persuasion, vicarious experience, enactive mastery experience and physiological and affective states. The instruments for collecting data were the Visual Analog Scale and post-operative self-efficacy questionnaire used to monitor the manipulation. The reliability coefficient was .93. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and one-way repeated measure ANOVA.

               The results revealed that the mean score of post-operative pain after laminectomy at days 3, 4, and 5 in the experimental group was significantly lower than those in the control group (p < .05). However, post-operative pain days 1 and day 2 of the experimental groups and the control groups were difference but were not statistically significant.
