Abstract

The control group (59 cases) received conventional nursing.

Results: The quality of life in the intervention group was significantly higher than the control group after intervention, and the negative emotion was significant lower than the control group. Conclusion: The comprehensive nursing intervention, based on health education, psychological guidance and encouragement of social support, could significantly reduce the negative emotion of patients with pulmonary tuberculosis, improved the quality of life.
