OBJECTIVE: To study the clinical value of accelerated rehabilitation nursing (ARN) in improving the symptoms of PCa patients after surgery.
METHODS: This study included 80 cases of PCa treated surgically in our hospital from October 2020 to October 2021. We randomly divided the patients into two groups of an equal number to receive ARN and routine nursing care (the control group), respectively. We obtained the scores of the patients on IPSS, TCM syndromes, quality of life (QOL) and pain, incidence of postoperative complications, satisfaction with nursing care and Gleason scores, and compared them between the two groups.
RESULTS: The IPSS and TCM syndrome scores were significantly lower (P < 0.05 ), and the physical and psychological function score remarkably higher in the ARN than in the control group (P < 0.05), but there was no statistically significant difference in the social function scores between the two groups (P > 0.05). The postoperative pain score was also significantly lower in the ARN than in the control group (P < 0.05), and so was the incidence rate of postoperative complications (10% vs 37.5%, P < 0.05). The patients’ satisfaction with nursing care was markedly higher in the former than in the latter group (90% vs 80%, P < 0.05). No statistically significant difference was observed in the Gleason scores between the two groups of patients.
CONCLUSION: Accelerated rehabilitation nursing can effectively improve the symptoms of PCa patients after surgery and therefore deserves clinical application.
