Nursing regimens were applied on patients with diabetes mellitus with tumors to improve medication compliance and the effects on medication compliance were observed and analyzed. A total of 160 patients diagnosed with diabetes mellitus and tumors treated at the Second Hospital of Dalian Medical University were enrolled. The patients were divided into the control group and the research group, with 80 patients in each group. Routine nursing care was provided to patients in the control group, while routine nursing care combined with medication compliance interfering nursing regimen was provided to patients in the research group. The nursing effects were compared between both groups. By comparing the medication compliance, fasting blood-glucose, 2-hour postprandial blood-glucose, levels of glycosylated hemoglobin and the overall nursing satisfaction, results showed that all indicators of the research group were significantly better than those of the control group (p<0.05). Application of medication compliance interfering nursing regimens to diabetic patients with tumor could significantly improve the medication compliance of patients.
