Abstract

Aims. The aim of this study was to establish and evaluate the effectiveness of a care map for total knee replacement patients. Background. Bureau of National Health Insurance in Taiwan is about to launch a diagnosis-related group. This major reform has seriously affected the running of medical institutions, which are facing unprecedented management pressure. Design. A quasi-experimental control group design was carried out. Methods. Eighty-three patients were recruited, with 39 experimental group patients received nursing care based on a care map, while 44 patients who were in control group received routine nursing care. An interdisciplinary team designed the care map, which included items required for patient care from outpatient to postdischarge. Results. (1) The mean age of patients was 72·73 (SD 8·42) years. Mean length of stay was 4·92(SD 0·77)days for the experimental group and 7·09 (SD=1·09) for the control group. Difference between groups was significant (t=-10·285, p
