Introduction: To implement multi-dimensional health education for liver cirrhosis patients and assess patients' self-care agency (SCA) and complication rate.
Materials and methods: According to the random number table method, 80 liver cirrhosis patients hospitalized in our hospital from March 2020 to August 2021 were divided into two groups (control group and observation group), 40 cases/group. The control group and the observation group were given routine intervention and multi-dimensional health education, respectively. The quality of life and SCA scores, complication rate, nursing compliance rate, total intervention satisfaction rate and disease knowledge mastery scores in two groups before and after intervention were recorded and evaluated.
Results: Quality of life and SAC scores presented no difference between two groups after statistical comparison (P>0.05). After different intervention measures, quality of life and SCA scores in both groups presented elevation relative to those before intervention, and the improvement in the observation group was greater, with significance after statistical comparison (P<0.05). Relative to the control group, the observation group had a lower complication rate, and higher nursing compliance rate, total intervention satisfaction rate and disease knowledge mastery scores, with statistical significance (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Multi-dimensional health education can effectively elevate the quality of life and SCA of liver cirrhosis patients, reduce the incidence of complications, improve nursing compliance rate and total intervention satisfaction rate, and is beneficial to help patients more easily grasp disease knowledge, which is worthy of promotion.
