Objective: To study the application effects of teach-back method combined with WeChat education in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Methods: Convenience sampling was used to select 103 patients with COPD hospitalized in the department of respiratory medicine of a tertiary-level hospital from March to June 2021 as study subjects. Randomized grouping was carried out using the random number table method. The routine care was given in the control group, and the teach-back method combined with WeChat tutorials on the basis of routine care was applied in the intervention group. In the follow-up three months after discharge, the changes in pulmonary function, self-care ability, and quality of life of patients in the two groups were observed and compared. Results: After the intervention, the pulmonary function indexes of both groups improved significantly, and the improvement effect was more significant in the intervention group (P < 0.05); after the intervention, the self-care ability scores of the patients in the intervention group were significantly higher than those of the control group (P < 0.05); the quality-of-life scores of the patients in the two groups decreased at 3 months after discharge, and the scores of the patients in the intervention group were significantly lower than those of the patients in the control group (P < 0.05). Conclusion: The teach-back method combined with WeChat education can effectively improve the pulmonary function, self-care ability, and quality of life of patients with COPD.
