Aims: Due to the long-term disabilities following stroke, these patients need to achieve acceptable self-care. One of the conceptual models of nursing care that can empower patients is the Orem self-care model. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the effect of a program called “Family-centered empowerment “ based on the Orem model on the self-care of brain stroke patients.
Materials & Methods: This is a two-group experimental study carried out on 64 patients with stroke referred to Ayatollah Kashani Hospital affiliated with Isfahan University of Medical Sciences in 2020-2021. The data collection tools included a checklist of personal and clinical characteristics with four items (age, gender, level of education, occupation) and the Barthel index for activities of daily living (ADL).
Findings: No significant difference was observed between the two groups in age, history of stroke, history of other chronic diseases, and level of self-care behaviors (p>0.05). A significant difference was observed in the self-care score between the intervention and control groups two weeks after the intervention (p<0.005). The average self-care score in the intervention group was significantly higher than in the control group.
Conclusion: The Orem self-care method helps the nursing community, policymakers, and planners as an effective program for empowering and increasing the efficiency of brain stroke patients.
