Abstract:
Purpose: To develop a health promotion model to enhance the quality of life (QoL) specific to families with E?- thalassemic children. Design: The research model was composed of three phases. The first phase was the situation analysis and planning. The second phase was implementing group development. The third phase was evaluating QoL, a problem solving process and participatory action process. A purposive sample of 15 families with E?-thalassemic children was carried out in a community in the Udorn-Thani province. Data was collected using in-depth interviews, focusing on group discussion, and was analyzed by content analysis method. During the first phase, the families' problems were presented the six categories i.e. perception of thalassemic knowledge, psychosocial problems, concerns for the future, social support, financial difficulty and health care services. The second phase was the program implementation in order to solve their problems. The issues for action were increasing awareness of the disease, and setting up thalassemic housewife groups. Over a period of one year, the following action plans were carried out: (a) developing thalassemic housewife group and (b) implementation: educating and creating psychological group support and implementing occupational development. The third phase was the evaluation of the program. Results: both qualitative and quantitative data indicated that over period of one year the participants had expressed their QoL had improved since before attending the program. The quantitative data obtained from the questionnaires indicated significant improvement in three areas- physical and psychological domains and total QoL. Also, results indicated significant improvements in thalassemic knowledge, as well as overall attitudes and depression levels. Lastly, the result of the participatory satisfaction evaluation showed the success of the three measures-planning and outcome, leadership and progressive of program. Significance: The proposed model guided the thalassemic families to develop the ability to improve their well-being by themselves, aided by health care providers.
