COPD self-management education : Vietnamese nurses' intention to educate, influencing factors and knowledge base

Huynh, Thuy Phuong Hong (2014) COPD self-management education : Vietnamese nurses' intention to educate, influencing factors and knowledge base. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis used a cross-sectional survey to examine how Vietnamese nurses educate COPD patients about the self-management of their disease. Further, the study also describes the characteristics of Vietnamese nurses working in COPD specialty areas as well as examining their COPD knowledge and the factors which influence their delivery of COPD self-management education when caring for COPD patients. The study found that while Vietnamese nurses are likely to deliver self-management education to the COPD patients they care for, there are areas for improvement in nurses' knowledge in all areas of COPD management and self management education.
