Abstract

Objective - It was previously assumed that the relationship between HLOC and quality of life may be mediated by adherence. HLOC plays a role in determining a person's behavior, including adherence to medical regimens. Methodology/Technique - HLOC was measured by the Multidimensional Health Locus of Control Scale, adherence was measured by the 8-item Morisky Medication Adherence Scale (MMAS-8), and quality of life was measured by the Quality of Life Scale. Findings - The results indicate that Internal HLOC (β = 0,497, p<0.005) and Powerful Others HLOC (β = 0,264, p<0.005) significantly predict quality of life, respectively. However, adherence does not mediate the relationship between HLOC and quality of life (p=ns) Novelty - The study concludes that adherence is not a mediator between HLOC and QOL.
