Objective: To investigate the effect of shared decision-making on compliance with oral nutrition supplementation (ONS) and quality of life of among elderly patients (≥ 60 years) with cirrhosis. Methods: This study used an action research design that tested the intervention of shared decision-making among elderly patients with cirrhosis. It measured how this intervention influenced compliance with oral nutrition supplements and quality of life. Sixty-eight elderly patients with cirrhosis who were hospitalized in our department from May 2019 to November 2019 were randomly divided into two groups: the control group the observation group. The total number of participants in each group was 34. The control group received routine care. The observation group received shared decision-making nutrition care in addition to routine care. Results: After the intervention, patients in the observation group had higher oral nutritional compliance and quality of life scores than the control group and had a statistical significance (P < 0.05). Conclusion: After the implementation of Shared decision nutrition care for 34 elderly patients with cirrhosis, the patients' ONS compliance and quality of life were greatly improved. At present, there are relatively few researches on the application of Shared decision in digestive system diseases,Hope to play a certain role of reference or guidance.
