241. The effectiveness of a nurse-led illness perception intervention in COPD patients: a cluster randomised trial in primary care (PubMed)

The effectiveness of a nurse-led illness perception intervention in COPD patients: a cluster randomised trial in primary care The new COPD-GRIP (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease - Guidance, Research on Illness Perception) intervention translates evidence regarding illness perceptions and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) into a nurse intervention to guide COPD patients and to improve health outcomes. It describes how to assess and discuss illness perceptions in a structured way (...) . Secondary outcomes were HRQoL, daily activities, health education impact and changes in illness perceptions. There was no significant difference between the groups in the CCQ at 9 months. We found a significant increase in health-directed behaviour at 6 weeks (p=0.024) and in personal control (p=0.005) at 9 months in favour of the intervention group. The COPD-GRIP intervention, practised by nurses, did not improve health status in COPD patients in primary care. However, the intervention has benefits
