Abstract [en]

Purpose: To explore the feasibility and possible outcomes of a nursing intervention in patients with peripheral vestibular disorders. Design: A randomized controlled trial (RCT). Methods: Thirty-six patients participated in the study: the intervention group (n = 18), who received the intervention, and patients in a control group (n = 18), who received standard care. The intervention includes patient education and individualized nursing support during a 6-month rehabilitation period. Outcomes were symptoms, well-being, sense of coherence, and self-care measured at baseline before randomization and at 6 and 9 months later. Findings: At the 9-month follow up, the patients who received the intervention rated significantly fewer vertigo-related symptoms and a higher sense of coherence than the control group. Conclusion: The intervention was feasible and seems to support the patients to manage symptoms, but confirmative studies are warranted. Clinical Relevance: Patient education in combination with individual support may be beneficial to help patients with peripheral disorders during their rehabilitation.
