There are about 350 million chronic carriers of HBsAg worldwide, there are about 12 million hepatitis b patients with an annual incidence of 158/100,000. The aim of this study was to conduct a literature review to find out the nursing interventions in hepatitis B patients care. The study was conducted as a literature review and the data was collected using two databases: CINAHL and PubMed. Results from eight articles were analyzed using content analysis method, summarizing the different nursing interventions for hepatitis B patients, as well as the patient's self-psychological and physiological nursing intervention education. In conclusion, comprehensive nursing intervention can help patients with hepatitis B to maintain physical and mental health, prevent patients from worsening their condition, and better help patients to return to normal life. However, these nursing interventions have a broader range of impacts that need to be explored. Further research suggests studying nursing interventions for patients with different ages of hepatitis B and various methods to prevent patient progression.
