Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), a severe disorder with the high death rate, high recurrence rate and high disability rate, affected the quality of human life. Community-based rehabilitation (CBR) helps disabled people at both community and family levels. However, the effect of CBR on the recovery of people after ICH remains unclear.
Patients were treated with the CBR training program, subsequently, medication compliance test, clinical neural impairment measurements, functional comprehensive assessments, improved Barthel index score, and life qualities assessments were to performed at 3-month or 6-month intervention of CBR to evaluate the influence of CBR on the medication compliance, physical function and life quality of patients after ICH.
After the treatment of CBR, we observed that, the rate of medication compliance, motor function, functional comprehensive rating scale score, modified Barthel index score, and generic quality of life inventory-74 in the CBR-treated group were significantly higher than that in the control group; the neural impairment measure score in the CBR-treated group was significantly decreased in comparison to the control group.
CBR increased the medication compliance, promoted the recovery of the neurological function and improved the life qualities of ICH patients.
