  1. Self-Efficacy for Managing Chronic Disease 6-Item Scale (SES6C) is range between 6 and 60, in which the higher the score, the higher the perceived self-efficacy for managing chronic diseases
  2. aUnivariate variables with P values < 0.05 were entered into the multiple linear regression
  3. bNominal variables were entered into analysis using dummy coding
  4. cP values are bold where they are less than the significance level of 0.05
