ملخص

The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of a nurse-directed intervention (NDI) in terms of improvement in the quality of life (QOL) of the diabetic adults. An evaluative approach with a quasi-experimental design incorporating a non-equivalent pretest posttest control group design was adopted. The sample consisted of 30 diabetic adults in the experimental group and 30 in the control group attending the outpatient departments in the two private hospitals selected by convenience non-random sampling technique. The findings of the study showed that there were statistically significant differences between the QOL mean pretest and posttest scores in the experimental group total QOL, health and functioning, social and economic, psychological and spiritual and no significant differences in the control group. The mean posttest and mean gain QOL scores of the total QOL, health and functioning, social and economic, and family subscales of the experimental group were significantly higher when compared to the control group. Thus findings indicate effectiveness of the NDI in terms of significant improvement in the quality of life of the diabetic adults. The demographic and the clinical characteristics were independent of the QOL scores of the diabetic adults.
