To investigate the influencing factors of self-care ability of breast cancer patients during chemotherapy and the intervention effect of self-care health education. The factors influencing the self-care ability of breast cancer patients during chemotherapy were analyzed. The self-care ability score, HAMA score, HAMD score and quality of life score of the two groups before and after intervention were compared. Analysis showed that educational level, negative emotion, Karnofsky score, and family relationship may be factors influencing the self-care ability of breast cancer patients during chemotherapy. There was no significant difference in the self-care ability score, HAMA score, HAMD score and quality of life score between the two groups before intervention (P>0.05). After the intervention, the self-concept, health knowledge level, self-care skills, self-care responsibility, The total scores of self-care ability were significantly higher than those of the control group. The HAMA score and HAMD score were significantly lower than the control group. The physiological dimension, emotional dimension, social/family dimension, functional dimension score and total quality of life were significantly higher than the control group. The above differences were statistically significant (all P < 0.05). Cultural level, negative emotion, Karnofsky score, family relationship may affect the self-care ability of breast cancer patients during chemotherapy, and self-care health education intervention is beneficial to improve the self-care ability of breast cancer patients during chemotherapy and improve negative emotions.
