Self-efficacy forms key modifiable personal resources influencing illness management, rehabilitation participation, and their outcomes such as perceived health-related quality of life (HRQOL) among people with a cardiovascular disease (CVD). Yet, an overarching research synthesis of the self-efficacy-HRQOL association in the CVD context is missing. This systematic review and meta-analysis of research on the self-efficacy-HRQOL relationship among people with CVD investigates whether the strength of associations depends on conceptualizations of self-efficacy and HRQOL (general vs. specific), presence of cardiovascular surgery, the type of CVD diagnosis, and patients' age (up to 60 vs. older than 60). Research Method/Design: We searched the following databases: PsycINFO, PsycARTICLES, Academic Search Complete, Health Source: Nursing/Academic Edition, and MEDLINE. This search resulted in 17 original studies (k = 18 samples) included in the meta-analysis.
