Abstract


Effects of continuing nursing mode were studied in elderly home patients with chronic renal failure. Eighty five elderly patients with chronic renal failure were randomly divided into an experimental group (41 cases) and control group (43 cases). Patients in the control group were given the conventional discharge guidance and health education, and those in the experimental group were given the continuing nursing implemented by the continuing nursing team. The results showed that the scores on the self-care skills, sense of responsibility, self-concept and health knowledge of patients with chronic renal failure in the experimental group before discharge were significantly improved compared with those after discharge (P<0.01), the indexes of the dimensions in SF-36 scale were not significantly different between the two groups just after the admission (P>0.05), but those on the third month were significantly higher than those at the admission (P<0.05), and the scores of patients on each dimension in the experimental group were higher than those in the control group (P<0.05). Continuing nursing can effectively improve the self-care ability of elderly patients with chronic renal failure, the patients can actively cooperate with the treatment and nursing, thereby effectively controlling the progression of the disease, reducing the patients’ suffering and economic burden, and then improving the quality of life of the patients.
