Abstract

Background: Bipolar illness has a negative impact on an individual's life as well as the lives of significant others. It also contributes to impairment because of decreased social and vocational functioning, an increased risk of suicide, and repeated relapses (Kurdal et al.,2014).


objective: To assess the impact of nurse-led psychoeducation interventions on the functioning of bipolar disorder patients.


Study Design: This study used a two-group quasi-experimental pretest–posttest approach. A total number of fifty-nine patients were divided into two groups, (n=29) patients in the study group and (n=30) in the control group.


Tool: The Bipolar Disorder Functioning Questionnaire and a demographic questionnaire form were used to gather the data.


Results: After psychoeducation, the scores of the experimental group became high as compared to a comparison group on all functioning levels by a significant margin (p <.05).  


Conclusion: Psychoeducation has enabled bipolar patients to function at significantly greater levels.
