Impact of synergistic professional nursing on clinical efficacy and quality of life of tubercular meningitis patients
Objective: To evaluate the effect of synergistic mode of professional nursing upon the clinical efficacy and quality of life of patients diagnosed with tubercular meningitis.
Methods: In total, 120 adult patients with tubercular meningitis admitted to Hebei Chest Hospital between June 2014 and December 2015 were randomly assigned into the observation and control groups (n=60). Clinical data were matched and retrospectively analyzed. In the control group, patients received conventional nursing care, and their counterparts were subject to synergistic mode of professional nursing care. All participants were followed up for 1 y. Clinical efficacy and quality of life was statistically compared between two groups.
Results: Statistical analysis demonstrated that the overall effective rate in the control group was 66.7%, significantly lower when compared with 86.7% in the observation group. The scoring of multiple parameters related to the quality of life in the observation group was significantly higher when compared with that in the control group (all P<0.05).
Conclusion: The synergistic mode of professional nursing service integrates health education, psychological consultation, diet guidance and nursing measures after hospital discharge. Implementation of this mode can significantly enhance the clinical efficacy and quality of life of patients diagnosed with tubercular meningitis.Author(s): Gao Jiangyan, Cao Hongtao, Yang Fan, Ren Guangpan, Lv Pei, Wang Yongjun
