Self-efficacy scale

The Self-Efficacy Scale is a 13-item measure to assess men’s self-efficacy in convincing their wives to use general contraception or IUD. The measure includes three domains: Self-efficacy for general contraception; Self-efficacy in convincing wife to get an IUD inserted; and Self-efficacy in convincing wife to continue to use an IUD.
