dc.description.abstract Secondary data analysis was conducted with data from the 1991/92 Manitoba Study of Health and Aging (MSHA). The purpose of this investigation was to test the reliability and validity of the Self-Management Inventory (SMI) as a measurement tool for self-care abilities among elderly respondents based on Orem's model of Self-care (1991). The sample consisted of well elderly residing in Winnipeg Manitoba (n = 809). Findings demonstrated that for this sample, the SMI was not a valid or reliable measurement of self-care. However, findings suggested a self-care indicator consisting of the self-reported ability to do house work and yard work. Logistic regression analysis was conducted to determine the correlation between the self-care indicator and conditioning factors posited by Orem (1991). Findings suggested a relationship between the self-care indicator and self-reported health, age, gender, life satisfaction, and utilization of pharmacist services. Implications for research and practice were identified. en_US
