Health promotion interventions concern behavior affecting interventions intended to improve the living habits of patients with diagnosis of schizophrenia. In this work, the psychiatric nurse had an important role in taking into consideration the resources of the patient. The literature indicated a difference between men and women what regarded nursing. Aim: To investigate health promotion interventions between genders for patients with diagnosis of schizophrenia. In addition, to identify predicting factors for the achievement of health promotion interventions. Method: The study design was retrospective cross-sectional. Data registered 2014 and 2015 in the national quality registry for psychosis care were analyzed statistically. The sample had a size of 5554 individuals.
Results: Logistic regression analysis indicated that to be a man, have systolic hypertension and lack occupation were statistically significant variables that together affected whether or not patients had received health promotion interventions during the last twelve months, chi-squared test indicated no difference between men and women. However, chisquared test indicated that to be below 55 years of age, to have high school education and occupation were predicting factors for health promotion interventions. Conclusion: Being a man seemed to predict health promotion interventions, however systolic hypertension and lack of occupation were predicting factors together with being a man. Gender specific advice could be of help to the psychiatric nurse in the initial valuation of the needs of the patient.
