Abstract

Context: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a type of lung disease characterized as chronic lung airflow obstruction that interferes with normal respiration. The World Health Organization ranked it as the third leading cause of death. The evidence indicates that health education may improve patients' outcomes.

Aim: This scoping review aimed to identify empirical evidence related to the effect of health educational guidelines on self-management practices among patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease improve self-management practices.

Methods: Studies published between 2015-2021 and recruited from authentic databases, including MEDLINE, PubMed, CINAHL, and EBSCO, were reviewed critically to explore the effect of health educational guidelines on patient self-management practices.

Results: There are four themes generated from this scoping review. In this scoping review, 14.700 articles were searched. After checking for duplicates, 1344 articles were left to evaluate titles and abstracts. This evaluation left 301 articles for reading of full texts. Of these, 238 articles did not meet the aim of this review. Ten studies were included in the current review.

Conclusion: This scoping review found that health educational guidelines consider an important need to improve self-management practices. Health education can improve patients' health outcomes and thus should be considered an essential component of the overall management of COPD.
