Effect of Information-Motivation-Physical Activity Skills Program via Line Application on Quality of Life in Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Keywords:chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, IMB model, line application, physical activity, quality of life
This randomized controlled trial study examined the effect of the information-motivation-physical activity skills program via Line application on quality of life in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The participants were 58 patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease who aged 40 years or over and received medical care at the OPD of a tertiary level hospital in Bangkok. All participants were randomly assigned to the experimental (N = 29) and control groups (N = 29). The control group received usual care, while the experimental group received both usual care and information-motivation-physical activity skills program via Line application based on the IMB model for eight weeks. Data were analyzed using paired sample t-test, and Man-Whiney U test.
The results revealed that the participants were 91.38 % male with a mean age of 68.85 (SD = 10.08) years. There was no significant difference in personal data, illness and treatment data, and the mean scores for quality of life between both groups at baseline (p > .05). After receiving the program, the experimental group had a significantly better quality of life than before receiving the program (t = 7.08, p < .001), and better than the control group (z = -4.09, p < .001). Nurses should apply this program to promote better quality of life in patients with COPD.
