Objectives: To evaluate changes in the practice of using inhalers for outpatients have chronic obstructive pulmonary at Nam Dinh General Hospital after the intervention. To compare the effectiveness between intervention methods of direct consultation (DC) and direct counseling method incorporating information technology (DC – IT). Subject and method: Intervention study on two groups of patients, 30 patients have chronic obstructive pulmonary in each group with similar characteristics who were treated at Nam Dinh General Hospital from October 2019 to May 2020. Two research groups analyzed and compared the practice of patients at two times, the first time (T1) before the intervention and the second time (T2) after the intervention was 3 months with 3 consecutive interventions (each intervention was 1 month). One group intervened with the direct consultation method; one group intervened with the direct counseling method incorporating information technology. Data were collected by the observational method, using the inhaler procedure and entered and processed on SPSS 20.0 software. Results: The group of patients was intervened with the direct counseling method about practice using inhalers increased after the intervention, the average point of inhaler practice before the intervention was 6.50 ± 1.63 and after the intervention was 8.57 ± 0.63 with p <0.05. The group of patients who intervened with direct counseling method incorporating information technology about using an inhaler increased after the intervention from 6.70 ± 1.29 (before the intervention) to 8.80 ± 0.61 (after intervention), with p <0.05. The efficiency index of using the inhaler dose of (DC – IT) group was higher than the DC group at 63%. Conclusion: The average of the two groups increased significantly after the intervention. However, the intervention method of DC – IT was more effective than the DC method.
