Summary

To evaluate the effectiveness of a discharge planning using the strategy of motivational interviewing among patients with diabetic foot ulcers

Description

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a discharge planning using the strategy of motivational interviewing among patients with diabetic foot ulcers.

A randomized controlled trial design will be used. From August 2020 to July 2022, 132 patients hospitalized for diabetic foot ulcers will be recruited. They will be randomly assigned to either the experimental or the comparison group in the first year, and then they will be followed by one year. The control group will receive routine care; the experimental group will receive a discharge planning which use the strategy of motivational interviewing. The discharge planning will be provided individually at the following time points: before discharge, on post-discharge days 3, 7, 14, 21, 28, and then each month till one year. Outcome measures include diabetic foot ulcer self-care behaviors and self-efficacy, foot skin conditions, glycemic control (measured by HbA1C), the infection rate of foot, and the readmission rate. Data will be collected at baseline and at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after discharge.

The generalized estimating equation (GEE) will be used to evaluate the effect of the intervention on the diabetic foot ulcer self-care behaviors and self-efficacy, foot skin conditions, and the effect on glycated hemoglobin value reduction. The log-rank test will be used to compare the infection rate of foot, and the readmission rate between two groups.
