The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of nursing care based on Orem's nursing theory on nutritional self-care of myocardial infarction patients.
Self-efficacy was explored as a disposition which may motivate behavioral change.
One hundred and four subjects were randomly assigned to treatment or control groups.
The nursing intervention, which took place during the first 6 weeks following hospital discharge, was effective in supporting healthy low-fat eating behavior.
Nursing care influenced patients'self-care agency but lacked impact on self-efficacy for healthy eating.
