Review of domestic and international literatures about health behavioral theories indicated that the common sense model (CSM) by Leventhal and colleagues is useful to explain self-management behaviors of patients with chronic illness because of its multifaceted framework. The brief measurement scale of illness representation, the main construct of the CSM, was developed for Japanese patients in the present study. Although validity and reliability of the scale were examined in the hemodialysis patients with diabetes, further study with larger sample should be needed to confirm the results.
