Abstract
Purpose: To explore the effect of using WeChat platform to assist extended care on the compliance behaviors, health locus of control and quality of life of patients who were undergoing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) bariatric surgery. Methods: A total of 120 patients from July 2018 to June 2019 in the First Affiliated Hospital of Jinan University were enrolled in the study. 120 patients were randomly divided into control and intervention groups containing 60 patients respectively. In the control group, patients were given routine extended care. In the intervention group, WeChat platform extended care was adopted in addition to routine extended care. The compliance behaviors of patients in the two groups were collected and compared, and health locus of control and quality of life of patients in the two groups before the intervention and 3 months after the intervention were evaluated using the multidimensional health locus of control scale (MHLC) and 36 item short form health survey (SF-36). Results: The compliance rates of the intervention group were higher than those of the control group (P<0.05). Before the intervention, there were no significant differences between the two groups of patients' health locus of control and quality of life (P>0.05), but 3 months after the intervention, compared with the control group, the health locus of control and quality of life of the intervention group were significantly improved (P<0.05). Conclusions: Application of WeChat platform to assist extended care is beneficial to the enhanced compliance behaviors, improved health locus of control and quality of life of patients undergoing LSG bariatric surgery.
