  Background & Aims: Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases in the world and despite medical advances it is still a major problem for healthcare systems. Improving the quality of life is one of the objectives of the nursing care programs. This study was done to evaluate the effect of partnership care model on the quality of life of patients with Asthma.

  Material & Methods: It was a clinical trial which was conducted in 2012, in medical wards of Imam Khomeini Hospital of Jiroft University of Medical Sciences. Using convenience sampling method, 80 hospitalized patients were selected and randomly assigned into experimental and the control groups. During a period of 3 months, intervention including the stages of motivation, preparation, engagement, and evaluation was performed. The control group just received routine care. Data was collected by Quality of Life Questionnaire for adults including 26 questions on the four major dimensions of the quality of life : physical , psychological, social and living environment and was analyzed by Chi-Square, paired samples t-test, independent samples t- test and ANOVA using SPSS-PC (v.20).

  Results: There was a significant difference between the two groups in terms of the mean quality of life score (from 46.3 ± 12.2 to72.93 ± 9.2 in the experimental and 41.1 ± 13.1 to 41.5 ± 13.8 in the control group). There was also significant differences between the dimensions of quality of life including physical, psychological, social, and environmental aspects in the two groups (P<0.05).

  Conclusion: According to the findings, this model could be recommended for caring of asthmatic patients.
