Background and Purpose: The COVID-19 pandemic imposes a significant burden on healthcare systems. Proper self-care practice in people can reduce the pressure on the medical staff and save time and expenses for the patients. We assessed the quality of self-care education of healthcare worker from the viewpoint of patients who recovered from COVID-19.
Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted by convenience sampling on 346 recovered patients from COVID-19 who referred to the clinics and hospitals of Babol University of Medical Sciences, Iran, in 2021. A valid and reliable researcher-made questionnaire evaluated the quality of self-care education provided by a healthcare worker to patients. Data were analyzed by SPSS software, version 21 applying t test, analysis of variance, and Pearson correlation at a significant level of less than 0.05.
Results: The mean quality of the self-care education questionnaire was 98.28±12.12 out of 110 for 346 participants with a mean age of 46.17± 14.71 years. The mean score for communication skills, educational method, and content were 12.83±3.55 out of 15, 13.72±3.81 out of 20, and 71.71±7.6 out of 75, respectively. There was a relationship between marital status and educational content (P=0.005). Communication skills (P=0.002) and educational method (P=0.05) had a relationship with educational level. Age had a negative relationship with communication skills (P=0.005) and educational method (P=0.01).
Conclusion: This study showed the high quality of self-care education of healthcare worker on recovered COVID-19 patients. The design, implementation, and evaluation of self-care training should be considered according to the factors related to it such as marital status, educational level, and age.
