Application effect of self-efficacy nursing intervention on patients in the convalescent stage from ischemic cerebral infarction

Objective: To explore and analyse the application effect of self-efficacy nursing intervention on patients who are convalescing from ischemic cerebral infarction.

Methods: A total of 80 subjects with ischemic cerebral infarction were recruited from patients who were enrolled at our hospital from January 2015 to January 2016. The recruited patients were randomly divided into the observation and control groups. Each group comprised 40 patients. Patients in the control group received routine nursing measures, whereas patients in the observation group received training for self-efficacy nursing intervention, which is based on routine nursing measures. The clinical efficacy, nursing satisfaction degree, nursing compliance rate, and nursing comfort of the two groups were compared after nursing intervention.

Results: After nursing intervention, the total clinical efficacy rate of patients in the observation group was 95%, whereas that of patients in the control group was 67.5%. The nursing satisfaction degree, nursing compliance rate, and nursing comfort of patients in the observation group were significantly (P<0.05) higher than those of patients in the control group. After nursing intervention, the blood lipid concentration of patients in the observation group significantly decreased (all P<0.05) compared with that of patients in the control group. Thus, self-efficacy nursing intervention positively and significantly alleviated the high blood lipid concentrations of patients.

Conclusion: Self-efficacy nursing intervention, which is based on routine nursing intervention, significantly improves the clinical efficacy, nursing satisfaction degree, nursing compliance rate, and nursing comfort of patients with ischemic cerebral infarction. Therefore, self-efficacy nursing intervention is suitable for clinical application to patients who are convalescing from ischemic cerebral infarction.
