This quasi-experimental study aimed to: (1) compare the dyspnea of elderly with COPD between the experimental group before and after participating in the information and motivation behavioral skill development program; and (2) compare the dyspnea of elderly with COPD between the experimental group and control group. Sample were 44 patients with COPD aged 60 years and over attending special OPD clinic for COPD patients at Chiangraiprachanukroh hospital. They were randomly assigned into the experimental or control groups (22 for each group). The control group received conventional nursing care meanwhile the experimental group received the Information and Motivation Behavioral Skill Development
program for six weeks. Research instruments consisted of demographic information and the dyspnea modified Borg’s scale (MBS). The correlation coefficient of the MBS was 0.90. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and dependent t-test. Results were as follows:
1. The mean score of dyspnea symptom of elderly with COPD after receiving the program was significantly lower than before receiving the program (p<.05).
2. The mean score of dyspnea symptom of elderly with COPD in the experimental group
was not significant different from the control group.
