Nyckelord: quality of care qualitative research liver cirrhosis nursing care patient experiences pragmatic clinical trial multi-centre study

The purpose of Maria Hjorth's doctoral thesis was to study patients’ day-to-day experiences with liver cirrhosis illness and their perceived quality of care, both before and after implementing an adjunctive registered nurse-based outpatient intervention, namned the Quality Liver Nursing Care Model (QLiNCaM). This was explored through patient narrated experiences and assessed through patient questionnaires regarding the quality of care. In future publications, patients’ health-related quality of life and health economy will be reported, following the adjunctive registered nurse-based outpatient intervention.
