ABSTRACT
Objective To explore the effects of WeChat-based peer supports upon medication adherence and quality-of-life in liver transplant recipients .Methods A total of 63 patients with liver transplantation were conveniently divided into intervention group (n=32) and control group (n=31) depending upon their different follow-up periods .In control group ,routine outpatient health guidance was offered while intervention group received 6-week WeChat-based peer supports . Medication compliance and quality-of-life of two groups were evaluated at Month 3/6/12 post-intervention . Results At Month 3 post-intervention ,as compared with control group ,only non-punctual medication improved significantly in intervention group (P<0 .01);at Month 6 post-intervention ,all aspects of drug adherence improved in intervention group (P< 0 .05) ,at Month 12 post-intervention ,drug adherence ,non-punctual medication and missed dosing improved in intervention group ( P> 0 .05 ) . However , inter-group quality-of-life was not statistically significant at Month 3/6/12 post-intervention .Conclusions WeChat-based peer supports may partially improve the immediate compliance of patients with liver transplantation .However ,long-term outcomes and effects on quality-of-life are worth further researches .
