Introduction: Diabetes is one of the common chronic diseases in modern societies and self-care behaviors consider as one of the most important factors in controlling this disease. Regarding the impact of psychological factors on adherence to self-care behaviors, the current study aimed to predict self-care behaviors, based on goal setting skill and perceived stress of patients with type 2 diabetes. Materials and Methods: In this descriptive, cross-sectional study, a total of 190 type 2 diabetic patients, referred to Kashan Diabetes Center and private clinics, were selected, using convenience sampling. For data collection, the participants completed the purpose in life questionnaire, perceived stress questionnaire, and self-care behavior questionnaire. The collected data were then analyzed, using Pearson’s correlation coefficient test and stepwise multiple regression analysis. Results: According to the present results, goal setting and perceived stress could not independently predict self-care behaviors in diabetic patients. However, the interaction effect of these variables could successfully predict these behaviors (P<0.01). Conclusion: Our findings suggest that, by improving goal setting skill and perceived stress of patients with diabetes, we can improve their self-care behaviors.
