Background: Considering the complex conditions of work in rural environment, it is important to evaluate the quality of life and its relation with self-efficacy in health care providers
Methods: This descriptive-analytical study was performed on 301 health care providers working in rural health centers. The short form of quality of life questionnaire (sf36) and Shererchr('39')s general self-efficacy scale was used to evaluate the study variables. Data were analyzed using ANOVA, independent t-test, Pearson correlation coefficient and linear regression.
Results: The average score of quality of life was 65.42 ± 19.1. Self-efficacy results showed that the mean self-efficacy score was 64.12 ± 10. According to multivariate linear regression method, there was significant inverse and independent relationship between quality of life with work duration (B = -0.45, P-value = 0.001) and income (B = -6.07, P-value = 0.001). There was no meaningful relationship between self-efficacy and quality of life in this study (B = -0.12, P-value = 0.33).
Conclusion: This study showed that work duration and income were important predictors of quality of life.
Keywords: Quality of Life, Self Efficacy, Health Care Providers, Rural Health Services
