Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study to evaluate the significance of PICC nursing health education on the healthy development of breast cancer patients and its application effect. Methods: 128 patients aged 20 to 85 years with malignant tumours were included in the research cohort. In this research, only patients who had a PICC placement for less than two weeks, were less than 20 years old, and had a malignant tumour were included. Patients who were able to complete the questionnaires on their own or with help were included. Two equal groups were formed, group C (control) and group S (study). HPLP-II was used to categorise the patients. Catheter maintenance compliance, psychological well-being, and lack of PICC maintenance were examined. Results: Group C and Group S were statistically indistinguishable in demographic characteristics such as gender, age, education, location, and family income (P>0.05). We found that there were significant differences between the high and moderate level groups in terms of education and other factors, such as family income and length of catheterization (P 0.05). Immediately after the intervention, both the HPLP-II and CPPSM scores were enhanced, and both scales' scores in the intervention group were greater than in the control group (P 0.05). Patient education has been shown to substantially reduce patients' anxiety and sadness throughout therapy, as shown by lowered SAS and SDS scale ratings in both groups after the intervention (P 0.05). According to the results (P 0.05), patient education may improve catheter maintenance compliance in the study group (as opposed to the control). Patient education has the potential to greatly decrease PICC maintenance failure, as shown in Table 5 (P 0.05), which shows that 10% of study participants had PICC failures compared to 22% of the control group. The rate of problems during placement in the study group was considerably lower than in the control group (P 0.05), demonstrating that patient education may greatly minimize the frequency of difficulties during placement. Conclusion: In this study, we observed that patient education may increase healthy behaviour and self-management skills as well as prevent problems, relieve negative feelings, and improve compliance.
