Effect of Health Education Based on Transtheoretical Model on Frailty and Self-Management in Patients with Diabetic Nephropathy

Background: In the past 30 years, the prevalence and mortality of chronic kidney disease in China have increased significantly, the Transtheoretical Model and health coaching technology are widely used in the self-management process of patients with chronic diseases, and have achieved good application results. However, there is no research to explore the effect of this model on the frailty and self-management ability of non-dialysis patients with diabetic nephropathy. Objective: To investigate the effect of health education based on Transtheoretical model of change on frailty and self-management in patients with diabetic nephropathy. Methods: In this study, a randomized controlled trial was adopted. from December 2022 to February 2023,80 patients with non-dialysis diabetic nephropathy in the Department of Nephrology of a tertiary hospital in Sichuan Province from December 2022 to February 2023 were selected by convenient sampling method. According to the random number table method, they were randomly divided into control group (n = 40) and experimental group (n = 40). The control group was treated with routine nursing program, and the experimental group was treated with the Transtheoretical model combined with health coaching technology on the basis of the control group, and evaluated by self-management behavior scale and frailty scale. Results: After 6 months of intervention, the self-management score of the experimental group was higher than that of the control group, The frailty score of the experimental group was lower than that of the control group, and the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). Conclusion: This project improves the level of self-management behavior of non-dialysis patients with diabetic nephropathy and reduces the frailty state, which is worthy of further promotion.
