Results: Of the illness perception scale’s sub-scales, the mean score taken in the disease symptoms was 7.36±2.72, and for the views about the illness scale, the mean scores were as follows personal control 20.97±4.85, timeline (acute/chronic) 21.72±6.15, emotional representations 24.67±6.21, illness coherence 17.46±3.95, consequences 20.84±4.94, treatment control 19.20±3.97, timeline (cyclical) 13.77±2.74. And for the causes of illness sub-scale, the mean scores were as follows respectively: psychological attributions 14.30±4.74, risk factors 17.23±4.37, immunity 8.42±2.55, and accident and chance, 4.49±1.76.
