Introduction: Communicating effectively with mechanically ventilated patients is difficult and challenging which can have a serious impact on the quality of nursing care. Communication board is one of the tools to communicate with these patients. In this study, we intended to investigate the effect of using a communication board on the communication dimension of perceived quality of nursing care in mechanically ventilated patients.
Methods: This randomized clinical trial was performed in the intensive care units of Imam Khomeini Hospital in Tehran. 60 patients were randomly divided into control and experimental groups. The instruments were used included two questionnaires of demographic characteristics and quality of nursing care questionnaire (Qualpacs) to measure the quality of nursing care in the communication dimension. In the intervention group, a communication board was used to communicate with the patient and in the control group, communication was done routinely. After the intervention, the Qualpacs questionnaire was completed by the research units. SPSS version 24 was used for statistical analysis.
Results: There was no significant difference in demographic characteristics between the two groups (P>0.05). The mean score of perceived nursing care quality in the intervention group was significantly higher than the control group (19.06±3.7 vs 12.9±2.61). 96.7% of patients in the intervention group had optimal to ideal satisfaction with nursing care, while only 66.7% of patients in the control group had good satisfaction with the quality of care. (p <0/001).
Conclusion: The results of this study show that using a communication board in mechanically ventilated patients leads to an increase in the perceived quality of nursing care in the communication dimension.
