Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of multimedia CD education on pressure garment application knowledge and self-care ability in burn patients with scar contracture.  

Methods: A quasi-experimental pre-and post-test research design with intervention and comparison groups was used. A convenient sample of 100 burn patients with scar contracture from a regional hospital in southern Taiwan was recruited. The research instruments used in this study included: a structured demographic questionnaire, a pressure garment application knowledge, and a functional independence scale. Descriptive statistics, chi-square test, independent t-test, and paired t-test were utilized for data analysis.

 Results: Results found that the multimedia CD intervention effectively enhanced the self-care ability level (p< .001). Both experimental and control groups had significant increases on the level of pressure garment application knowledge (p<0.001). However, the experimental group (88.18%) was more effective than the control group (65.41%) for pressure garment application knowledge.

 Conclusion: The results of this study showed significant effectiveness of multimedia CD education on self-care ability, and pressure garment application knowledge of burn patients with scar contracture. We recommend these findings may provide health care professionals with references as planning and providing patient education.
