Little research has been conducted on influencing factors contributing to readmission of patients with COPD in Taiwan. The purpose of this study is to examine the relationships among physiological factors (daily functioning, comorbidity, & severity of illness), psychological factors (self-efficacy & depression), perceived family support and readmission for people with COPD following hospital discharge at 14 and 90 days in Taiwan. Theoretical framework: This is a longitudinal and descriptive correlational study substructed from Roy’s adaptation model. Subjects: Informed consent will be obtained from 140 patients with COPD scheduled for discharge from regional and district hospitals in the Pingtung area in southern Taiwan. Method: The investigator will obtain the demographic data by reviewing patients’ charts. Participants will be interviewed by the investigator at the patient’s home within 24 to 48 hours after their index hospital discharge. During the interview, the participants will complete the questionnaires of daily activities/social functioning subscale of the Pulmonary Functional Status Scale (PFSS), COPD Self-Efficacy Scale (CSES), Zung Self-Rating Depression Scale (SDS), and Personal Resource Questionnaires (PRQ2000). Also, a lung function test (FEV1 % predicted) will be performed during the interview period. Follow- up calls to participants’ homes will be used to collect readmission rates, dates and also calculate the length of stay at home after hospital discharge. Nursing Implications: Appropriate nursing assessment and discharge planning can be focused on identified risk factors of COPD readmission. The study expects to help nurses and other healthcare providers reinforce the need for adequate and cost-effective health care to delay and decrease readmission rates and to improve the COPD patients’ quality of life for people in Taiwan.
