This work was to explore the effect of comprehensive out-patient nursing on chronic disease patients. 140 patients were treated with routine and comprehensive out-patient nursing. Two groups of patients were compared in terms of patient's awareness of their own disease knowledge, compliance rate of disease control, psychological status, accidents incidence, and patient satisfaction. The results showed that patients in the research group had more knowledge about their own diseases (P<0.05). The number of patients in the research group who reached the standard of disease control increased significantly after nursing (P<0.05). The Self-Rating Anxiety Scale (SAS) score was 50.67 in the control group and 45.23 in the research group; and the Self-rating Depression Scale (SDS) score was 52.14 and 48.65, respectively. SAS score and SDS score of the research group were significantly lower than those of the control group (P<0.05). The incidence of infection, fever, pressure ulcers, and falls was 8.57% in the research group, which was significantly lower than that in control group (P<0.05). The nursing satisfaction in the research group was significantly higher (P<0.05). Patients receiving comprehensive out-patient nursing had a deeper understanding of their disease knowledge, better disease control effect, fewer accidents, higher nursing satisfaction, and better nursing effect. Therefore, it can be applied to the out-patient nursing of chronic diseases patients and showed a high value to treat the chronic diseases.
