Title:
APN Transitional home health care of COPD patients
Abstract:
APN Transitional home health care of COPD patients
Conference Sponsor:Midwest Nursing Research Society
Conference Year:2001
Author:Neff, Donna
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, a major cause of disability and mortality, affects more than 17 million individuals and is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. Exacerbations, steady deterioration of respiratory distress, and functional status, and a progressive deterioration in health mark the course of the disease. An adaptation of the Quality-Cost Model of APN Transitional Care guided this quasi-experimental study. The primary aim was to examine the effectiveness of a program of APN directed and supervised transitional home health care pulmonary disease management team delivered to COPD patients in ADLs and IADL status, dyspnea, anxiety, depression and health service use. The transitional and routine care delivered to 80 patients in a home health care practice. Patients received the APN intervention (n=41) or routine care (n=39). There were significant group differences in IADL and in the number home health care length of stay, acute care visits and rehospitalization. The model allowed for early detection of complications, treatment, opportunities for patient learning, and health promotion. Additionally, an effective 'nurse dose' was demonstrated by the intense concentrations of home health care visits by APNs, RNs/LPNs/NAs in the first month and led to improved outcomes.
