This thesis describes the impact of video narratives on self-efficacy related to medication-taking behaviour of post-stroke patients. The video narratives incorporated the concepts of Health Belief theory in a motivational story format, delivered by actual patient and medical professional, were able to motivate and trigger patients’ proactivity towards enhanced self-efficacy in understanding and taking medication, positive perceptions on illness and treatment, and improve blood pressure control and monitoring. This strategy was readily accepted by post-stroke patients of various cultural backgrounds in Malaysia. The sustainability of this translational research of theory-to-practice highlights the necessity of future collaborations in tertiary healthcare settings.
