Objective: To test the effects of an original discharge planning and follow-up support program during the transitional period of care for chronic heart dis- ease (CHD) in elderly patients. Method: This study used a randomized controlled trial to compare the effectiveness of a discharge planning protocol developed specifically for elderly Chinese hospitalized CHD patients with routine care. The patients in both study group (100) and control group (100) received routine care. Patients in the study group received a discharge planning program which included assessment, health education and consultation, discharge plan, patient referral by hospital nurses before discharge; continuing intervention of continued education and consultation during the follow-up by community nurses after discharge. Results: Control features were: demographic factors, health and functional status. Compared with the control group, self-reported adherence to diet and health-related daily behavior at 2 days, 4 weeks and 12 weeks post- discharge; medication adherence at 4 weeks and 12 weeks post-discharge; and physical exercise at 12 weeks post-discharge were all significantly higher in the study group (P<0.05). Conclusions: Study findings demonstrate that the discharge planning and follow-up support program may benefit the elderly CHD patients by en- hancing CHD related knowledge and health behavior.
