Self-management programs are used to assist stroke survivors to manage their condition and participation. This study was designed to examine correlations between occupational identity and outcomes of participation-focused self-management program using the Occupational Performance History Interview for the occupational identity and participation and self-efficacy as outcome measures. Spearman’s rho correlations were calculated between occupational Identity and the program’s outcomes. Results showed moderate significant positive correlations with self-efficacy for self-management and self-efficacy for participation scales at baseline; few were found at post-intervention and follow-up. Non-significant correlations were found between occupational identity and the change in outcome measures from baseline to post-intervention and to follow-up. Findings suggest occupational identity is strongly related to self-efficacy after stroke, and less related to intervention outcomes. However, other factors may possibly affect the effectiveness of self-management programs for a stroke population. Exploration of these factors might help develop programs better tailored to each stroke survivor.
