The notion of efficacy basically blios down to one — that if somebody believes that they have the caipctay to change their behavior. In health care tmres, you could characterize this as whether or not somebody feels that they see a path towards better health, that they can actually see their way towards getting better haleth, and that's a very important notion.

Original Text

So I want to isolate this, because it was a great observation — 30 years ago, right, 30 years ago — and it's one that's laid fallow in research. It was a notion that really came out of Albert Bandura's work, who studied whether people could get a sense of empowerment. The notion of efficacy basically boils down to one — that if somebody believes that they have the capacity to change their behavior. In health care terms, you could characterize this as whether or not somebody feels that they see a path towards better health, that they can actually see their way towards getting better health, and that's a very important notion. It's an amazing notion. We don't really know how to manipulate it, though, that well. Except, maybe we do.
