Zu Ermei, Yan Guixia


Objective: To investigate effects of the co-nursing intervention on self- care ability and quality of life of hemodialysis patients. Methods: Ninety-six patients were treated with hemodialysis for the treatment of chronic renal failure in our hospital from December, 2014 to January, 2016. Patients were randomly divided into two groups: treatment group (n = 48) and control group (n = 48). The patients in the treatment group received co-nursing intervention, while the control group received routine nursing intervention. Results: The quality of life and self-care ability of the two groups before admission were not significantly different. However, quality of life and self-care ability of the treatment group were better than that of the control group, and the difference was statistically significant. The incidence of complications in two groups were compared. The incidence of complications in the treatment group was significantly lower than that in the control group. Conclusion: Co-nursing model in hemodialysis patients can improve self-care ability, quality of life, reduce the complications of patients and achieve satisfactory clinical results.
