Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of the Partnership Care Model (PCM) on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in adults with chronic diseases.

Methods Data Sources/Study Setting: Existing literature dealing with the effect of HRQoL on chronic patients according to the HRQoL outcomes based on SF36 questionnaires.

Study Design: Systematic review and meta-analysis.

Data collection: Medline, PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science, Embase, Cochran database and Persian databases, including SID, Magiran, Iranmedex, and Irandoc, were searched according to the MeSH terms until May 15, 2022. Data analysis was made by using the random effects model and heterogeneity by I2 index, and all analyses were made by STATA vers.16 (Stata Corp, College Station, Texas, USA).

Principal findings: Three studies were included in the meta-analysis. Computing the common effect size, there was a significant intervention effect in all HRQoL dimensions, physical and mental subscales, as well as HRQoL total score. The results showed that there was significantly moderate to high substantial heterogeneity between studies except for vitality (I2=45.9%, P=0.157) and physical functioning (I2=30.9%, P=0.235) dimensions.

Conclusion: According to the results of the study and realizing the efficiency of PCM on the eight dimensions of quality of life of chronic patients, it can be stated that this national model, which is in line with the culture and context of Iran, is effective, simple, efficient and reliable. It can be used in the promotion and improvement of various dimensions of HRQoL in chronic diseases.
