Self Management Support is the care and encouragement provided for patients with psychosis to carry out the activities of daily living.
To find out the outcome of self management support on conative behaviour of patients with psychosis.
Design and Setting
Randomized block design was used to conduct the study at Government Head Quarters Hospital, Erode, Tamil Nadu.
Methods and Material
Simple random sampling technique was used for selecting 40 samples, 10 in each experimental group. Self management support on bathing and behaviour chart was given for male and female patients in experimental group I and III; bathing was given for male and female patients in experimental group II and IV. The tools used were demographic variables and Conative Behaviour Assessment Rating Scale.
Statistical analysis used
Frequency, Percentage, Mean, Standard deviation, Randomized Block Design ANOVA and Chi-square test were used to analyze the data.
Findings of the study depicts that Randomized block design ANOVA tested the F1ratio (Male) value which was (3.14) for the experimental group I and II and F2ratio (Female) value was (4.72) for the experimental group III and IV. When compared with male patients, female patient's conative behaviour had improved after the implementation of Self Management Support. Significant association was found between posttest scores on conative behaviour and the demographic variable with diagnosis in experimental group I.
Self management support is an effective intervention for the male and female psychosis patients.
