78 Patients, the patients were divided into two groups, the intervention group and the control group.

Hospital Settings

· N/A

Patient’s sleep quality, survival quality, mobility, and life quality in two groups were significantly improved.

The study aims at determining the impact of transitional care to the quality of life of the patients with COPD. The patients in the study were divided into two groups: intervention and control (39 cases each). The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), Quality of Life Scale Abbreviated Version (QOL-BREF), Activity of Daily Life Scale (Barthel index), St. George’s Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ), and COPD Assessment Test were used to assess patient anxiety and depression symptoms, sleep quality, survival quality, mobility, and life quality at admission and three months after discharge (CAT).

First and foremost, based on a questionnaire survey, this study only looked at 3-month TC results. As a result, the long-term impact, such as readmission rate, could not be reliably determined

Level I, Good Quality: Reasonably consistent results; sufficient sample size for the study
design; some control, fairly definitive conclusions; reasonably consistent
recommendations based on fairly comprehensive literature review that includes
some reference to scientific evidence

· N/A

Improvement of survival quality of patients in the intervention group was markedly greater than that in the control group

It’s also important to evaluate the patient’s drug compliance.

· N/A

The study only took samples from a hospital, which aren’t always representative of patient conditions in other areas.

· N/A

The morbidity of COPD varies depending on the location

· N/A

Sample size in this study is small, the patient’s characteristics may have an impact on the findings.
