Results
Findings showed that the mean score of quality of life in admission time was (77.41±15.08), discharge time (66.96±15.66) and a month later (42.87±22.08). The mean of palliative care hospitalized patients was 68.73±14.59. There was a significant and positive relationship between quality of life and palliative care in the patients. This relationship between quality of life a month later and palliative care was better and more meaningful (r=-0.39) (P=0.0001) than quality of life in discharge time and palliative care (P=0.098) (r=-0.16). However, it was not observed a significant relationship between quality of life in admission time and palliative care in the patients (P=0.191).
Conclusion
Palliative care is delivered rather good based on hospitalized patient's viewpoints. It can be useful to improve quality of life in chronic heart failure patients over time, so that most of patients after discharge of hospital and receiving health team cares found considerable improvement in quality of life.
