Abstract

                The purpose of this quasi-experimental research was to study the effect of promoting perceived benefits and perceived barriers program on medication adherence of patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention. Patients, with myocardial infarction who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention, and were admitted in internal medicine wards of Songklanagarind hospital, were selected (using purposive sampling). Eligible patients were assigned to a control (n=22) or experimental (n=22) groups. The groups were matched by age, gender and educational level. The control group received usual nursing care. The experimental group received a 5-week of promoting perceived benefits and perceived barriers program, based on the Health Belief Model. Research instruments were comprised of medication adherence, perceived benefits, and perceived barriers questionnaires. The questionnaires were validated for content validities by 5 experts. The Cronbach’s alpha coefficient of them were .85, .91, and .83, respectively. Data were analyzed using percentage, mean, standard deviation, and t-test. The results revealed that:

  1. In the experimental group, the mean score of medication adherence, after received the promoting perceived benefits and perceived barriers program, was significantly higher than that before receiving the program at the statistical level of .05.
  2. The mean score of medication adherence, after received the promoting perceived benefits and perceived barriers program in the experimental group, was significantly higher than that of the control group, who received only the conventional nursing care, at the statistical level of .05.

                The finding results suggest that nurses who taking care patients with myocardial infarction who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention could apply this program to promote medication adherence for these group of patients.
