동기면담이 심부전 환자의 질병 관련 지식, 우울, 자가간호 및 삶의 질에 미치는 효과
Effects of Motivational Interviewing on Disease-related Knowledge, Depression, Self-care, and Quality of Life in Patients with Heart Failure
Kim, Sung Min · Lee, Haejung
The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of motivational interviewing on disease-related knowledge, depression, self-care behavior, and health-related quality of life in patients with heart failure.
Twenty outpatients with heart failure being seen at one of three hospitals in southern areas of South Korea were randomly assigned to the experimental group (n=9) or control group (n=11). The experimental group received 10~20 minute telephone interviews, twice a week for four weeks. Data were collected from May 1 to October 31, 2012.
Participants in the experimental group showed significant increases in levels of disease-related knowledge and self-care behaviors, especially in the area of regular exercise.
The findings of this study suggest the possibility of motivational interviewing to elicit behavior changes in patients with heart failure. Considering the high refusal and drop-out rates of the study participants, developing more systematic approaches for patient recruitment and retention strategies are required. Repeated studies with bigger sample size would strengthen the generalizability of the study findings.
