Abstract: This study investigated the effects of implementing Gagné’s events of instruction as the instructional strategy for a series of rescue pressurized metered-dose inhalers (pMDI) lessons on patient self-efficacy and learning performance. The purpose was to determine whether examining self-efficacy can improve not only patients’ ability to use such inhalers correctly, but also inform rehabilitation programs to improve their training procedures. The training occurred over a seven week period for patients with chronic respiratory disease. This paper addresses: the need for instructional strategy utilization for patient education in pulmonary rehabilitation and adjacent settings, components of self-efficacy instrumental to creating instruction for patients with chronic diseases, and instructional strategy methodology. It ends with a discussion of findings alongside suggested best strategies gleaned from this study
