Aim: The purpose of the concept analysis was to further clarify the term “self-efficacy” and translate it into the field of PMH in relation to the role that PNMs should perform. Self-efficacy (SE) is important to PNMs in PMH practice because it is linked to maternal and child health outcomes. PNMs levels of SE can increase or hamper their motivation to promote PMH or support women who are suffering from PMH disorders including postpartum depression.
Design: A review was conducted using Walker and Avant method.
Results: A total of 23 studies on the SE of PNMs in promoting PMH published between 2010 and 2021 were identified. Surrogate terms of SE were identified and clarified based on how their attributes differed from SE.
Conclusion: SE, as the main predictor of PNMs’ behaviour, plays a significant role in PNMs’ competence in delivering PMH care.
