BAKGROUND: Evidence shows that rheumatological rehabilitation in multidisciplinary teams, including disease information, drug treatment and physical exercise, have effect on the course of illness. Studies shows that self-efficacy is important in goal achievement. It is considerable to formulate realistic, patient-specific goals and evaluate them to achieve good treatment effect. A form that examines goal achievement and used clinically is Patient Goal Priority List (PGPL). AIM: Analyze goal achievement regarding ability, satisfaction, self-efficacy and fear to perform an activity in relation to a training period. Also specifically analyze how self-efficacy affects in patients with inflammatory joint disease, measured with PGPL. METHOD: A quantitative study, with 20 participants, ten in intensive group and ten in rehab group. Estimation of priority activities measured with PGPL, compared before and after the rehab period. Level of goal achievement was compared between the groups. RESULTS: Prioritized activities were mainly in the category of recreation. For both groups, significant difference (p= <0,05) were seen for ability and satisfaction in performing an activity before and after the training period. A significant difference was also seen regarding self-efficacy in the intensive group. Self-efficacy was significantly higher in the intensive group compared with the rehab group after completed training period. CONCLUSION: The result indicates that a period of training affects goal achievement and had effect on the participants’ ability and satisfaction to perform an activity. Self-efficacy increased in the intensive group.
