ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of different nursing interventions in patients with postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) in order to improve the quality of life and reduce the intensity of pain. A randomized controlled trial (RCT) was used to select 60 patients with postherpetic neuralgia and randomly divided into intervention group and control group, with 30 patients in each group. The intervention group received individualized nursing interventions, including psychological support, pain management education, physical therapy, and regular follow-up evaluation. The control group received routine care. The course of treatment was 3 months. Patients were assessed using a visual analogue pain scale (VAS) and Quality of Life questionnaire (QOL).The patients in the intervention group had significant improvement in pain intensity and quality of life compared with the control group. The VAS score in the intervention group was significantly lower than that before treatment, while the quality of life score was significantly improved. Personalized nursing intervention is of great significance for improving pain management and quality of life in patients with postherpetic neuralgia. The future nursing practice should increase the application of such interventions.
