Abstract

Background and Aims Permanent pacemaker implantation is one of the significant procedures for controlling and treating arrhythmias and cardiac conductive diseases. However, this method may create many physical and psychological complications for the patients and affect their quality of life. Learning self-care behaviors based on family-centered empowerment model is one of the effective methods for improving the quality of life. This study aimed to assess the effect of family-centered care on the quality of life of the patients with pacemaker implants. Methods This study was a clinical trial conducted on 70 patients with pacemaker in Chamran Hospital in Isfahan City, Iran. The study data were collected using the SF-36 QoL questionnaire. The obtained data were analyzed using statistical tests such as the Independent t test and repeated measures of analysis of variance in SPSS V. 23. Results Comparing the scores obtained from the control and intervention groups in the eight areas of quality of life before and after the study revealed that the intervention of the family-centered empowerment model resulted in increased scores in seven areas and accordingly the overall quality of life. However, these changes were not significant in the control group. Conclusion In line with other relevant studies, the results of the recent study indicate that the training based on the family-centered empowerment model can play an important role in the adoption of proper health behaviors and independence of the patients with permanent pacemakers. In sum, by implementing this model, the health of the patients with chronic diseases can be improved.
