Purpose: This quasi-experimental study was performed to investigate the effect of a Health Promotion Program(HPP) on self-efficacy, healthy lifestyle and blood lipid profile in employees with hyperlipidemia. Methods: The subjects were forty-three employees who were diagnosed as having hyperlipidemia during routine health examination at two worksites in Seoul in 2001. Of the forty-three subjects, thirty were allocated to the experimental group and the remaining thirteen were allocated to the control group. The HPP was applied to the experimental group for 11 weeks and included health education, diet counseling, watching videos, conference, and so on. The health education included information about exercise, smoking cessation, and abstinence from drinking alcohol and seven sessions of hyperlipidemia education. The experimental group was requested to keep a daily health promotion lifestyle diary. This diary was analyzed by a dietician and subjects were instructed based on the results. As for data analyses, wilcoxon signed rank test and wilcoxon rank sum test and x2-test were adopted using the SAS program. Results: 1. Self-efficacy scores of the experimental group were significantly more increased than those of the control group. 2. Healthy lifestyle scores of the experimental group were significantly more increased than those of the control group. 3. Blood total cholesterol values of the experimental group were significantly more decreased than those of the control group. 4. Blood triglyceride values of the experimental group were significantly more decreased than those of the control group. Conclusion: These findings indicate that the HHP could be effective in improving self-efficacy, healthy lifestyle and blood HDL cholesterol and decreasing blood total cholesterol in employees with hyperlipidemia. Accordingly, it is suggested that the HHP could be an effective nursing intervention for employees in the worksite by preventing cerebral and cardiac vessel complications related to hyperlipidemia in the long run.
