Abstract

PURPOSE:

The aim of the study was to determine the effect of Orem's self-care model on the self-care of adolescents with asthma.

DESIGN AND METHODS:

In this experimental design, adolescents with asthma (N = 80) received home visits and individualized care based on theory-guided nursing diagnoses. Patients in the experimental group were visited in their homes eight times, and those in the control group were visited two times.

RESULTS:

The five self-care skills of medicine usage, peak expiratory flow meter usage, applying an asthma action plan, keeping a daily follow-up schedule, and protecting against triggering factors differed significantly between the first and last visits in the experimental group, whereas the self-care skills of adolescents in the control group did not change.

PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS:

Applying Orem's self-care model increased the self-care skills of adolescents with asthma.
