Abstract:
A Comparative Study of the Quality of Life on Two Different Types of Intervention for Stroke Patients
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2006
Author:Mei, Lin Chen
P.I. Institution Name:Veterans General Hospital of Taipei
Title:Head Nurse
The purpose of this study is using physical function according to clinical outcome and using life quality according to humanistic outcome for total evaluation to compare the difference between life quality on cerebral infarct patient who has been intervention by supporting groups or regular care. This study was a quasi-experimental design to explore the effects on life quality between the two different intervention . The reliability and validity-tested instruments were used in this study as followings: the patient?s questionnaire about stroke-related quality of life and Modified Rankin Scale. During January of 2004 to July of 2004, a total of 100 samples that were diagnosed as mid-level stroke were drawn from length of stay in a Taipei medical center. There were two groups in this study; 50 patients were included in supporting groups intervention, and another 50 were intervention by regular care. After intervention for six months, we let patients answer the questionnaire about life quality and Modified Rankin Scale for the second time. There are 50 people in each two groups coming back to the OPD to answer the questionnaire. The collecting rate can approach to 100%. According to this study, the results stated that the supporting groups patients and regular care had much more progress (decrease Modified Rankin Scale ) than before intervention on the life quality and physical function. There was no notable difference on physical function between the groups after six months. Supporting groups patients had much more progress than regular care on the quality of life. The results of this study may offered an important reference to the hospital administrators and nurses who dedicated decision-making and quality care to the service. Key Word: stroke, health- related quality of life, supporting groups
